|Other Titles:||A Comparison of Implementing Electric Buses in Metropolises-Taipei and Kaohsiung|
Department of Industrial Education, NTNU
The major purpose of this study is to find a feasible, optimal solution to improve the air quality of metropolises in Taiwan. Air pollution and noise in Taipei and Kaohsiung are getting worse and worse due to the great increase in the number of vehicles over the past few decades. Therefore, citizens of these metropolises are not only forced to put up with great traffic congestion during rush hours, but also to live with smog and noise that directly or indirectly influence their healthy; An evaluation model of electric vehicles (EVs) implementation was used to analyze the situations of Taipei and Kaohsiung and to review the literature related to EVs technology and feasibility. A multivariate analysis of variance, commonly known as MANOVA, was adopted as a statistical tool to test and compare whether both cities are suited to the introduction of electric buses given limited resources and budgets. The analysis indicated that it is feasible to introduce electric buses for both cities to improve air pollution and noise as indicated that it is feasible to introduce electric buses for both cities to improve air pollution and noise as well, and Kaohsiung is better suited to introduction of electric buses than Taipei, because the energy, mileage and running time of each bus needed in Kaohsiung is much less than those in Taipei.
