An excellent transportation system is integral for Shanghai as it aims for sustainable development. Decision-making has a far-reaching impact on transportation, which should be improved and supplied with assistance. This thesis aims to design a tool based on a Decision Support System (DSS) named the Transportation Sustainability Decision Support System (TSDSS). The Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development (FSSD) is a key element that was integrated in the TSDSS which will guide the users to backcast from sustainability principles to be strategic in moving transportation in Shanghai towards sustainability. The TSDSS has 3 modules based on the ABCD method and 4 base systems including a Database System, a Model Base System, a Method Base System and a Knowledge Base System, which are designed to help Shanghai’s transportation system move in the right direction towards sustainability.
