Abstract

Mobility and transportation are the engine to economic growth of a country. Unfortunately, this engine also depicts the signs of the times (i.e. congestion, accessibility and road safety problems). It has been proven that the supply of infrastructure cannot keep up with population and mobility growth of countries, especially in the developing world, this is due to financial and human resource constraints.
