Authors : Mimoune Narimene . Benamirouche Rachid .

Abstract

Algeria’s budget constraints following the collapse of oil barrel prices require a multi-criteria decision-making process in all sectors, particularly in terms of transport. In this context, the AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) often used in Croatia, Taiwan and Russia offers valuable assistance to avoid uni-criteria decisions that have long been taken in Algeria. The study introduce notions of sustainability in the transportation field for ranking priorities and announces that the aggravation of the scourge of own vehicle ownership is the first priority before air pollution and other economic and social aspects, effective measures such as "progressive taxes" should relieve the capital and reconnect with the challenges of sustainable transport.
