This report focuses primarily on the bus system of public transport system as the dominant form of intra-city, or urban commuting trips, over the medium-term period, which is from 2003 to 2010. Beyond 2010, other modes may assume increasing importance as envisioned in the long-term urban and transport development plan up to year 2020 for HCMC.

This attempt made in the HOUTRANS is the first step to continuously update and elaborate the data and information in the future stage to establish a comprehensive database for urban and transport planning of the metropolitan area and respective local government authorities.
In the preface to the fourth edition of this text, the late Dr. Francis
McKelvey remarked that the technological and legislative developments
related to the air transportation industry in the 1980s
and early 1990s were of such significance that an updating of the book
was needed. The fourth edition, published in 1994, enhanced previous
editions, the first of which was published in 1962.
The past three decades have brought sweeping changes to the i eld of transportation.
In the United States and other developed nations, deregulation and greater reliance on
markets and the private sector has helped to reconi gure the transport industries. The
rise of intermodal goods movements and global commerce has produced efi ciencies
of operation and a greater interdependence among transport modes.
Globalization has forever changed the way we develop, communicate, and learn. Globalization
has also launched the new challenges and opportunities fundamentally affect our economic
prosperity and government policy, along with its related parties, making judgments and
decisions about the future. The new world of change requires new ways of thinking about
transportation, including thinking about new tools, new alliances, and a new architecture.
While much of the transportation systems in Europe and the United States are mature (if not senescent), the rest of the world is still planning, developing, and deploying new systems. The accomplishments and mistakes of places like the United Kingdom and the United States, then, can teach us lessons that may be applied to places where transportation remains nascent or adolescent.
The JICA-assisted “The Study on Urban Transport Master Plan and Feasibility Study in Ho Chi Minh Metropolitan Area” was conducted with the following main objectives: Formulation of a comprehensive Master Plan up to 2010 and 2020 for the urban transport system in the HCM metropolitan area, and a Short-term Action Plan up to 2005; conduct of feasibility studies on selected priority projects; and conduct of technology transfer on database development, modeling, and plan formulation to the Vietnamese counterpart staff during the course of the study.
In order to formulate a transport Master Plan, a short-term action plan, and feasibility studies in Ho Chi Minh metropolitan area, it is needed to acquire fundamental, comprehensive and sufficient information on traffic and transport situation as well as present problems in the study area. Fourteen traffic and transport surveys were conducted and explained in this technical report, except the Household Interview Survey, which is described specially in Technical Report No.02.
The Report describes the existing road network and presents the planned road network for year 2020, aimed to provide vehicular capacity to the forecasted traffic levels and modal split as described in Chapter 5 Vol.3 of the Main Report. As part of the master plan, a feasibility study was made on certain selected high priority sub-projects. This Report presents the technical aspects of one selected project, which is Ring Road No. 2.
Development of efficient and effective road network is the most important policy agenda for sustainable urban area development and growth in the study area. Urban area has been quickly expanding towards the outer areas along major roads. Dramatic population increase expected in the future requires a huge amount of urban areas for housing and other socio-economic activities. In order to support and guide these development demands properly, well articulated road network is the must.
In order to assess the current and future transport situation from the economic and financial point of view, vehicle operating cost (VOC) was estimated by type of vehicle. The vehicle classification is consistent with that adopted in the traffic count surveys conducted in the Study.
The proposed Institutional Actions to support the third component involves the strengthening and promotion of private sector involvement in the bus sub-sector, preceded by some important public sector technical reforms. This Chapter provides some outline recommendations for the development of urban transport within the STAP period, which are individually highlighted in text boxes.
This report has four chapters and appendices: Chapter 1 Houtrans transport survey and database, Chapter 2 Integration of transport and gis database, Chapter 3 Traffic demand forecast using cube voyager, Chapter 4 Technology transfer.
Knowing how people travel is essential in formulating any transport master plan, short-term action plan or feasibility study for that matter. One of the best ways of obtaining this data is by conducting a Household Interview Survey (HIS), that is, directly interviewing members of the sample household and asking them about their daily travel routine as well as looking into relevant socio-economic factors.
The technical report covers the overall aspects related to urban and regional planning in the study area, including current urbanization and socio-economic conditions, housing and industrial development, land conditions, and institutional aspects.
At present a station plaza, bus terminals and bus stops, an airport, passenger ports, and parking for cars and motor bicycles as transportation node facilities are exists in HCMC. Current condition and issue of these facilities are as follows.
Chapter 13: Aggregate planning. After completing this unit, you should be able to: Define aggregate planning, identify optional strategies for developing an aggregate plan, prepare a graphical aggregate plan, solve an aggregate plan via the transportation method of linear programming, understand and solve a yield management problem.
