ABSTRACT

This study aims to present the results of a systematic literature research developed to identify methodologies, models and scientific planning methods, and valuation of environmental costs in transport, which should serve as theoretical and technical basis for the development of a specific methodological contribution, for sustainable planning, reduction of energy consumption, low pollutant emissions, the urban environment of cities, and for the transport of people. The research carefully selected articles that have demonstrated the potential application of the concepts of sustainable logistics, green logistics and low-carbon logistics in public transport of people. In the second stage, applications directed to transport planning and valuation of environmental costs in transport were identified in these articles, such as pollutant emissions and energy consumption to standardize the concepts, understand them and use them to build a model. It was possible to identify 20 different methods with common objectives of transport sustainability and to build a methodological proposal of sustainable urban transport planning (MPTS-URB), whose contribution is a joint approach of sustainability, economic study, demand and transportation capacity factors, in which all work in harmony. Following this research, it is intended to apply the methodology built - MPTS-URB in the sample environment and to analyze its results.
