Passenger Transport Disutilities in the US: An Analysis Since 1990s

Abstract : Even providing the means for human displacements, passenger transport causes disadvantages that can be called disutilities, such as time and money spending, insecurity and discomfort, and, negative impacts on communities. From the National Transportation Statistics, it is possible to measure passenger transport disutilities and reaches some conclusions that can help planning and public policies of the country. The results show that Americans are wasting more time and spending more money on their cars since the 1990s. Insecurity related to traffic in all modes of transportation has decreased significantly, and the discomfort in automobiles may have experienced an increase due to improvements in the infrastructure. America is lowering its per capita emissions of local gases, but there is insufficient data for conclusions regarding the greenhouse gases.
