Abstract

This paper describes an exploratory study to analyze the relationship between urban population density and transportation energy consumption in the context of urban planning. Urban population density is used because it is commonly accepted as "proxy" for urban form pattern analysis in terms of degree of centralization. This paper reviews sustainable urban form, relationship between urban transportation and urban population density. Based on the secondary data, multi regression analysis on the relationship between urban population density and transportation fuel consumption on Malaysian cities are carried out. In this analysis, three main variables are explored: population density, private vehicle ownership and transportation fuel consumption. In order to understand the relationship between population density and transportation energy consumption, other selected global cities are used as benchmarks in relation to selected Malaysian cities. © 2010 by MIP.
