SHORT AND MEDIUM TERM ACCELERATED PROGRAMMES FOR PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT

KURZFRISTIGE UND MITTELFRISTIGE BESCHLEUNIGUNGSPROGRAMME FUER DEN OEFFENTLICHEN PERSONENNAHVERKEHR

PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT IS PARTICULARLY HINDERED BY TRAFFIC DIFFICULTIES IN THE INTEGRATION OF ALL TRANSPORT MODES IN PRESENT DAY CONURBATIONS. SPEED, FREQUENCY, RELIABILITY AND COMFORT ARE PROVIDED ONLY BY UNDERGROUND RAILWAYS OR SIMILAR RAILWAYS HAVING THEIR OWN RIGHT OF WAY. FOR THE REMAINING URBAN TRANSPORTATION MODES OTHER MEASURES, PARTICULARLY OF TRAFFIC REGULATION, CAN BE TAKEN TO IMPROVE THEIR CONDITIONS, IF THEY ARE CONSISTENTLY APPLIED. THESE INCLUDE SHORT-TERM MEASURES WHICH ARE OF LOW COST AND MIDDLE TERM MEASURES WHICH USE MORE RESOURCES BUT ARE OF GREATER EFFECT. THEY INCLUDE CONSTRUCTION SCHEMES AND THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SIGNAL FACILITIES WITH RELATIVELY GOOD EFFICIENCY FOR PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT.
