Using cars and motorbikes and sustainability
From the point of view of sustainability, cars are the cause most pollution and use most energy, especially taking into account all the stages of their useful life and if they are occupied by a single person. They are also the least safe in terms of accidents and one of the least efficient in economic terms.
Motorbikes are also less efficient than public transport in terms of energy consumption but more efficient than cars. Accidents for motorbike users tend to be serious, but they are more economical and occupy less road space than cars.
The location of the campus on the main urban road and transport networks mean that cars are one of the main means of transport used. 37.2% of the university community gets to the campus by car and 1.4% by motorbike. The index of car occupation is 1.1% is this should be taken into account. This affects the sustainability of the campus and means that car users have more costs.
