Transportation is very important for creating livable cities and urban design. Green (eco-friendly) transport must be considered first to talk about smart transportation. Green transportation options not only make our lives easier but also reduce congestion and our dependency on cars & foreign oil. It is safer & less costly which contributes saving the planet. The aim of transportation companies and legal authorities of the region should be to design a sustainable and eco-friendly transportation system for especially public transportation. In this study, we first summarize green transportation modes by explaining the advantages and disadvantages. Next, we compare the transportation modes in terms of energy usage for sustainable and green transportation planning of cities. We explain details of the alternative precautions to design more eco-friendly transportation systems inside the cities. In the last part, two examples for Turkey and Canada are given to clarify the importance of using eco-friendly public transportation systems.
