PUBLIC TRANSPORT: COORDINATION BETWEEN AN EXPRESS RAILWAY LINE AND OTHER TRANSPORT MODES IN URBAN AREAS

TRANSPORTS PUBLICS: COORDINATION ENTRE UNE LIGNE DE CHEMIN DE FER RAPIDE ET D'AUTRES MODES DE TRANSPORT EN ZONE URBAINE

TRANSPORT SERVICES IN A HIGHLY URBANIZED ZONE MUST BE BASED ON AN EFFICIENT COORDINATION BETWEEN THE STRUCTURE OF THE NETWORKS (REGIONAL NETWORK PERMITTING RAPID ACCESS TO THE CENTRE WITH EASY DISTRIBUTION OVER THE METROPOLITAN NETWORK THAT FULFILS A FUNCTION OF DISTRIBUTION), THE ORGANIZATION OF INTERCHANGE POINTS PERMITTING THE RAPID AND EASY TRANSFER FROM ONE MODE TO ANOTHER, A TARIFF SYSTEM PERMITTING FREE PASSAGE FROM ONE PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM TO ANOTHER, AND SYSTEMS DISCOURAGING THE USE OF THE PRIVATE CAR IN TOWN CENTRES (E.G. PARK-AND-RIDE).
