THE IMPACT OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION INVESTMENTS MADE BY THE MUNICIPALITY OF BUCHAREST UPON QUALITY OF LIFE
Journal of Community Positive Practices, 2018, issue 3, 39-49
Starting from evidence suggesting declining population figures in Bucharest, the research asks for the reasons why the Municipality should continue its investments in public transportation, given the negative demographics and natural growth. Research results indicate a strong and linear positive relationship between investments and number of journeys with public transport services. Building on this finding, the paper discusses that public administration investments in transportation eventually lead to improvements of the quality of life, by reducing the negative externalities of private vehicle use.
