The uncontrolled growth in urbanization and motorization generally contributes to an urban land use and transportation system that is socially, economically, and environmentally unsustainable. Thus a major challenge for transportation policy makers is to identify alternatives that will result in a sustainable transportation system. Various bus technologies are considered in this paper for land transportation and different decision-making groups performed the multiple attribute evaluation of alternative vehicles with sustainability point of view. In our case, an important concern is the dependency of decision criteria, in other words compromise solutions are preferred and unilateral satisfaction of a criterion is not enough. To reflect this situation, Choquet integral based aggregation is proposed and compared with other multi-criteria methods. The results show that criteria dependency is a significant point for the selection of sustainable transportation system.
