Single occupancy vehicle commutes are the principal cause of the chronic traffic congestion in the Seoul metropolitan area. Causing inconveniences to commuters and an increase in economic and social costs, the congestion problem is one of the core factors that undermine national competitiveness. Any policy measures aimed at
resolving this problem should be based on correct understanding of transport conditions in the national capital region. Research has found that the traffic problem in the capital region is related to the unbalanced supply of traffic facilities among its various areas and corridors. Based on this finding, this study suggests the following measures: building a transit-oriented transport system, establishing a travel demand management plan, and ensuring measures that can remove the imbalance among the various areas in the supply of traffic facilities.
Within the capital region, the level of traffic facilities such as roads, railways and buses differs significantly depending on areas; some districts exceed others by three to 10 times in terms of the number of facilities. There also exist big gaps in traffic facilities between major transport corridors. This leads to some commuters taking twice or three times as much time as others in entering Seoul from outer parts of the metropolitan area. The imbalance was found to be related to the income level of the residents: the facilities were generally better in areas with higher income levels.
To address this problem, this study proposes making selective investments focusing on less developed districts and implementing public transport-oriented policies. These measures should replace the traditional traffic investment practices that caused a growing gap between the haves and the have-nots in terms of transport benefits. Besides this, study suggests facilitating public transport through transport demand management. The congestion problem cannot be resolved through facility investment only, given that the number of cars is increasing at a rate two times faster than roadways. Therefore, it is critically necessary to manage travel demand. In addition, to improve the operational efficiency of metropolitan traffic systems, this study suggests the following measures: paid parking systems in downtown business districts and industrial complexes, preferential treatment for transit users, expansion of the HOV(High Occupancy Vehicle), HOT(High Occupancy Tolling) lanes, and IT-based TDM
A Study on car Registraion Numbering System Under the current car registration numbering when they move to a different ity or province, resulting in unnecessary costs and inconvenience. In addition, the current system does not allow car owners the right to
The end of December 2011, the number of cars registered in Korea approximately 1,844 ten thousand, and it shows ownership level of a car per 2.5persons. It is expected that amounts to 20 million within the next five years. Factors such as political support for eco-friendly vehicles and introduction of new vehicle type, make it increase continuously . A variety of methodologies for car ownership levels in the early 2000s were attempted. But follow-up studies are lacking until now. Therefore, it is time to reconsider the prospects for the car ownership. For this purpose, economic fluctuation factors since the gobal financial crisis in 2008 and green growth keynote of transportation sectors should be reflected. Consequently, this study aims to establish a consistent methodology for transportation policy, and on this basis, to be able announce and present regularly
