TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING : INTRODUCTION
Definitions of Transportation

Transportation is everything involved in moving either the person or goods from the origin to the destination.

Historical Development of Transportation in the Philippines
ANCIENT PERIOD

Water - first form of transportation

Tagalog (from the original Taga-ilog) - named after the Filipino Malays who lived and traveled on and along the streams and creeks

Eventually, the Filipinos had to learn to travel on land.

water buffalo or carabao and mechanical contraptions – transportation on land



TRANSPORTATION RELATED LAWS AND ORDINANCES
RA 10586 (ANTI-DRUNK AND DRUGGED DRIVING ACT OF 2013)

TRANSPORTATION RELATED AGENCIES
Civil Engineering Involvement in Transportation
Transportation engineering is more commonly used or refer to a subspecialty of civil engineering , which includes both physical civil engineering and systems engineering .

Historically, the primary involvement of civil engineers in transportation has been in the provision of physical facilities and the devising of operating strategies for them.

Most civil engineering activity related to the provision of physical facilities is what might be called physical civil engineering;

On the other hand, most civil engineering activity related to planning and operation of the transportation system, is what might be called systems engineering.

SPANISH PERIOD
• Horse-drawn carromatas - new means of transportation

• The government gave attention to road building and internal improvement

• ‘Compania de los Tranvias de Filipinas’ - granted two concessions for 60 years, the first in 1881 and the second in 1884.

• The first was to construct its lines within the limits of the city, while the second extended its activities up to the populous town of Malabon in Bulacan

AMERICAN PERIOD
• improvement & construction of roads was made

• Horse-drawn vehicles (calesa and carretelas) - means of transportation in the majority of the provincial towns

• Manila Railroad and Light Company (obtained in 1902) - a franchise to construct, operate, maintain and supply electric current and transportation for Manila and suburbs.
• 1912 - Registration of motorized vehicles

• 947 automobiles, 450 motorcycles, and 180 trucks

• 1927 - The bus started as a supplementary service to the MERALCO tramcars and the Manila Railroad.





POST WAR PERIOD UP TO PRESENT

• evolution of the jeepneys.

• This vehicle has gone through a lot of improvement. The post-war army-type jeep has been completely ‘Filipinized’ and is one popular mode of transportation these days.

• in December 1984 - Light Rail Transit (15km line) was partially opened commercially

• May 1985 - Light Rail Transit (15km line) finally put into operation

RA 7924 – MMDA LAW
-An act creating the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, defining its powers and functions

RA 8506
-an act banning the registration and operation of vehicles with right-hand steering wheel in any private or public street

RA 776
-An act to reorganize the civil aeronautics board and the civil aeronautics administration, to provide for the regulation of civil aeronautics in the Philippines

RA 9497
an act creating the civil aviation authority of the Philippines
RA 7471

Land Transportation

Roads
a thoroughfare, route, or way on land between two places, which has been paved or otherwise improved to allow travel by some conveyance, including a horse, cart, or motor vehicle.
MODES
OF
TRANSPORTATION
Highways
-a generic term given to roadways that are used to connect important cities, and usually have 4 lanes to provide for high speed traffic.
Expressway

usually a divided highway for high-speed traffic with some sort of access control (limited cross streets and driveways and/or onramps, offramps and interchanges).
Railways
a means of conveyance of passengers and goods, by way of wheeled vehicles running on rails.
Water Transportation

-provides low speed and relatively low accessibility, but extremely high capacity.

Waterways

any navigable body of water.Waterways can include rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, and canals.
Ferry Services

- a boat or ship (a merchant vessel) used to carry (or ferry) primarily passengers, and sometimes vehicles and cargo as well, across a body of water.

Ports and Harbors

A harbor is a body of water where ships, boats, and barges can seek shelter from stormy weather, or else are stored for future use

A port is a facility for loading and unloading vessels; ports are usually located in harbors.
Air Transportation

Airports

a location where aircraft take off and land
and consist of at least one surface such as a runway for a plane to take off and land, a helipad, or water for takeoffs and landings, and often includes buildings such as control towers, hangars and terminal buildings.

Airlines

a system that provides air transport services for traveling passengers and freight.
Pipelines
-highly specialized freight transportation system

ELEMENTS OF
TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

LINKS
the roadways or tracks connecting two or more points. Pipes, beltways, sea-lanes, and airways can also be considered as links
VEHICLES
the means of moving people and goods from one node to another along a link. Motorcars, buses, ships, airplanes, belts, and cables are examples
TERMINALS

the nodes where travel and shipment begins or ends. Parking garages, off-street parking lots, loading docks, bus stops, airports, and bus terminals are examples
MANAGEMENT AND LABOR
the people, who construct, operate, manage, and maintain the links, vehicles, and terminals
 Motives for transportation systems:

 military

 political , or economic bases



CONSTRAINTS

Public policy places a number of constraints on the transportation system, which may be seen in some cases as diminishing its economic efficiency. The most obvious of these are constraints related to environmental concerns, in the broad sense of anything that impacts the “human environment”.
WHAT IS TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING?
Transportation engineering is the application of the principles of engineering, planning, analysis, and design to the disciplines comprising transportation: its vehicles, its physical infrastructure, safety in travel, environmental impacts, and energy usage.

It involves “hard” physical sciences and “soft” sciences.

Indigenous Transportation
of the Philippines
The Jeepney
•The reassembled US army jeeps began to take a new form.

•named ‘jeepney’ – from the words ‘jeep’ and ‘jitney’

•Jeepneys flaunt carnival colors, the brighter the color the better

•‘Oriental baroque’ - describes the color combinations and decorations of jeepneys in the Philippines.

Motorized Transportation
The Tricycle (three-wheel vehicle)

•motorcycle with an attached sidecar.

•origin is unknown

•become the major mode of transport in many provincial towns.

•found in many secondary roads, providing door to door service to passengers

•provides a convenient means of transport from the main highway to tributaries such as barangay roads leading even to prominent subdivisions.

Motorized Transportation
The Pedicab

•a pedal-driven contraption,

•descendant of the tricycle

•1990 - Pedicabs operating along highways and major thoroughfares within Manila were banned because of its relatively light body; the major consideration should be the safety of passengers.

•the pedicab drivers do not observe traffic rules.

•Advantages of pedicab:
noise and pollution-free
they can easily provide employment because they are low cost
small-scale
cheap to run since no fuel is needed


Non - Motorized Transportation
The Calesa

•horse-powered cart - relegated to side streets and to the more seedy parts of town where it does not pose a traffic hazard.

•Manila’s calesas – found in Chinatown, in the marketplaces and in the poorer districts.


Non - Motorized Transportation
The Trolley

•Mode of transport run by muscle power

•use the railroad tracks by PNR and run a lot more frequent than the PNR commuter trains

•composed of a lightweight wooden frame, bamboo body, and ball-bearing wheels.

•can carry eight passengers.

•Along single track sections, the vehicle can be easily lifted to avoid collision with another trolley or with the gigantic PNR trains.

Non - Motorized Transportation
