Abstract

With the aim of achieving a lower carbon footprint on the environment, green technology has been introduced in transportation systems in the past decade. Vehicles powered by renewable energy and smart road plans will need to be utilised. In this hypothetical project, glow-in-the-dark roads, road heating elements, intelligent road lighting system, Urban Maglev, bicycle hire system, electric vehicle charging system and Bus Rapid Transit were proposed for implementation in York, to pioneer an eco-transport city. Problems this project sought to tackle included: bad weather conditions such as flood; snowy and icy roads; road congestion; excessive carbon emission; wastage of clean renewable energy. Public transport services provided through this project will reduce car usage in York, encourage cycling and walking, provide easy access for York residents and visitors, and pioneer renewable energy usage for private vehicles. We advocated the aforementioned solutions based on a review of the literature, case studies, archival research and a survey. As York is a city full of historical structures and with a growing population, factors of both technology and local needs have been integrated to produce a pioneering city in the United Kingdom while advancing the technology growth. As a result, renewable energy is hoped to be used in a much wider context as it would help to pave a healthier and more
sustainable future.
