Özet

Energy consumption of transport modes are partly dependent on the chosen travel mode. For specific OD pairs a comparison of travel modes in terms of energy consumption gives an idea of the possibilities to change the energy budget of a city. In this study a comparison of transport modes in terms of energy consumption is given for two chosen routes in the case study of Ankara, Turkey. The results show that there are differences with respect to chosen travel mode in terms of energy use and travel cost reflected to traveler for a certain OD couple.
