Whereas transportation has, over the years, posed a great challenge to the environment, it is important to note that there exist some alternatives to crude oil products like petrol and diesel that have been in use over the years. This is by using environmentally friendly products that, even when consumed by the engine, will not have a negative impact on the environment.
This, in return, will also create jobs and improve the livelihood of the people who will be producing such products. Since these products are extracted from plants, this means that there will be a chance of improving the status of the environment which has been destroyed when clearing the vegetation to make room for developing infrastructure, by planting more trees as some are used to extracted material for making the product. The other means of improving the transport sector and avoiding negative impacts on the environment is to do away with all the vehicles which do not qualify to be on the road because either they can cause accidents on the road and in the process harm the vegetation. Traffic congestion can also be improved or eliminated by considering the capability of road capacity enhancement that will see the roads holding much more vehicles.
This must be done hand in hand by increasing the parking space because if the road capacity is increased and the point of destination remains the same, the receiving end might experience major problems holding the ever-increasing number of vehicles. The same case may apply to the airports where the number of airplanes is expected to increase after a very short duration. The stakeholders may consider increasing the airport space so that as the number of airplanes increase, the port can be in a position to hold more planes. Efficient management of transportation systems can also solve the problem at hand. This is particularly by taking into consideration the problems that the members of the public have called in. Demand reduction by making sure that the government is providing route guidance to the members of the public is also another thing that can be done to solve the transportation problem.
Lack of accessibility and mobility can be tacked very well by the provision of access to transportation that is of high quality and that is user-friendly. This can be done by reporting the status of the traffic on the televisions and the radios. This would be very effective, especially nowadays that the technology has increased, and everyone has got a mobile phone that has a built-in radio. Also of importance is the provision of personalized service to the public about the status of the routes. The addition of more money to the budget that is severely constrained can also help by efficiently using existing funds which would include authorization and selection process.
