HANGZ / Hangzhou China

Abstract

Hangzhou’s transportation network fails to reach its full potential because transportation planners do not take into account citizen feedback through bottom-up planning. In order to determine major indicators of satisfaction, as advised by Hangzhou Dianzi University Dean of Sociology, Professor Wang Guofeng, our team conducted focus groups, interviews, and a survey with Hangzhou’s residents and transportation operators and managers. We found that increasing network compatibility among different transportation systems will target indicators reflecting low satisfaction, thereby increasing overall transportation satisfaction.
