The territories of modern tramway: line to the sustainable city

Jacques Stambouli

Abstracts

The implementation of new tram lines may contribute to the emergence of a sustainable city? To answer this question, this paper takes a theoretical model by inserting the economic system of transport in three environments: general economic environment, social environment, natural environment. A new tram line corresponds to a new offer in the economic system of transport of an urban area. This new product offers the potential effects on the economic system of transport and its three environments. These effects are identified from various studies of urban planning agencies of Nantes, Grenoble and Strasbourg. They are grouped in three areas geometric line, the corridor, the perimeter.  It is then possible to organize these territories in practical areas as street, walking distance to neighborhoods and the entire city. The Sustainable Cities project then aims to use the potential effects of modern tramway for a joint breeding in urban areas of the economy, social sphere and the biosphere.
