Abstract

 Many cities in the world, including Greater Manila, are suffering from
many ills linked to the dominant use of motor vehicles in daily mobility :
air pollution, traffic congestion, accidents... We will present some of the
measures implemented in Europe, especially France and Germany, to improve
the quality of urban life through “green” transportation policies. Then we
will have a look at some accomplishments in selected American and Asian
cities like Japan, before suggesting some ideas on how to improve the
situation in Manila through an adaptation of foreign successes to the
specificities of the Philippines capital region.
