Abstract

This paper presents the reality of motorization phenomena and the use of public transport in Perak, Malaysia. Quantitative analysis was performed to show the existing motorization trend against related factors. Data set, such as population, socio-economic condition, vehicle registration and road accidents were used for analyzing the characteristics and indicators of motorization. Statistical test was carried out for validation of model parameters. The impacts of motorization and some transportation problems were extensively discussed. Congestion, road accidents, noise, pollution, fuel consumption are among the important issues related to motorization problems. Promoting of public transport currently becomes interesting choice in anticipating the serious trend of motorization. On the other hand, the near future challenges of motorization are transport management to minimize congestion, accidents, noise, pollution and fuel consumption and promoting the use of public transport. The results indicate the impacts of motorization and some potential anticipation. The public awareness of the advantages of public transport will encourage the success of promoting public transport and will encourage the people to use public transport as an alternative to reduce the use of private cars.
