Paper

A Study on Influence of LRT on Population Shift in European Various Cities

Sakamoto So;Morimoto Akinori;Daimon Hajime

Journal of the City Planning Institute of Japan 50(3) p.774 - 7792015-2015

CiNii

ISSN:0916-0647

Outline:On the term of decrease in population in Japan, the compact city , where people can travel by NMT such as walk and bicycle and public transportation, is being promoted in local cities. In Toyama city, the plan of compact city based on public transportation such as a LRT is being promoted recently. The government recommends the residents to live around the stations of LRT. Therefore we focus on the population shift in the cities which have LRT systems, then clarify the necessity of LRT system on future compact city's plans, considering from the population of the city and the area along the LRT line. This research examined 27 cities throughout Europe by performing a detailed analysis of a particular reference to the each city's population distribution. Moreover we picked up particular cities to analyze the population of the area along the LRT line in detail. Then our results showed that how the introduction of LRT affects the population shift.

Study on Occurrence Pattern of the Vacant Houses in the Local Hub City

Outline:Recently, the rapid increase of vacant houses has been serious urban problem especially in local city in Japan. However, the occurrence pattern of vacant houses is still ambiguous due to the lack of the information. Therefore, this study focus on the data from the waterworks in the local hub city and examine the period of closing hydrant. The purpose of this study is to clarify the relationship between transition pattern of vacant houses and regional characteristics. As the result of this study, the transition pattern could be represented by logistic curve. Additionally, it was revealed that the vacant houses were generated early from the city center and the area around the station where land readjustment projects have been carried out.

DEVELOPMENT OF CAR-SHARING SYSTEM IN A SMALL BUSINESS USING ELECTRIC VEHICLES

ISSN:2185-6540

Outline:Car sharing is considered as one of the ways to familiarize the electric vehicle (EV) when popularization is not progressed. However, EV has the demerits such as a long time to charge and travel distance per charge is shorter than gasoline vehicle. Therefore, the possibility of car sharing using EV is unclear compared with gasoline vehicle. This research develops a car sharing system suitable for small businesses by a pilot study. We investigated operational procedure taking into account of the characteristics of EV by Monte Carlo simulation analysis. Analysing appropriate number of members according to different operating hours and travel distances, It was found that the frequency and operating time of a shared EV increased by limiting distance and time.
