The widely debated concepts of sustainability and sustainable development represent nowadays an essential aspect in transportation studies, in particular for the analyses of interactions between transportation and land-use systems. In this paper the three-dimensional concept of sustainability (social, economic and environmental sustainability) is formalized by a Fuzzy-Based Evaluation Method, which has already been applied for evaluating the sustainability of alternative transportation policies. The method is tested as a tool to interpret the preferences expressed by the decision makers, to identify the most important characteristics of alternative transportation policies and to support the design of hypothetical transportation services, following a ”What to” analysis.

Abstract

The widely debated concepts of sustainability and sustainable development represent nowadays an essential aspect in transportation studies, in particular for the analyses of interactions between transportation and land-use systems. In this paper the three-dimensional concept of sustainability (social, economic and environmental sustainability) is formalized by a Fuzzy-Based Evaluation Method, which has already been applied for evaluating the sustainability of alternative transportation policies. The method is tested as a tool to interpret the preferences expressed by the decision makers, to identify the most important characteristics of alternative transportation policies and to support the design of hypothetical transportation services, following a ”What to” analysis.
