Managing Mega-City Transportation Planning Systems: Cases Of New York And Shanghai


  • Xueming CHEN

    () (Virginia Commonwealth University)


This paper conducts a comparative analysis on the megacity transportation planning systems between New York and Shanghai. This case study examines the seven lessons learned from New York’s public transportation development: building political partnership; ensuring economical reasonableness; optimizing transit project development process; ensuring multimodal connection; integrating land use and transportation; achieving sustainable development; and synchronizing transit system expansion with travel demand increase. Based on this empirical study, the paper makes preliminary recommendations on how to apply these seven lessons to Shanghai.
