    Abstract: The urban train system is known as an energy-efficient and environmentally-efficient public transportation system. In this study, we suggest the method of constructing spatially the most realistic CO2 emission inventory by using a bottom-up approach with actual traffic amounts of urban train. We also developed the energy efficiency and the environm... Show More
