THE EXISTENCE AND THE RESOLUTION OF PROBLEMS IN PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT

ZUR ENTSTEHUNG UND BEWAELTIGUNG VON PROBLEMEN IM PERSONENNAHVERKEHR

ON THE BASIS OF AN ANALYSIS OF TRAFFIC DEVELOPMENT, SELECTED PROBLEM AREAS IN THE FIELD OF PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT ARE TREATED. RELATIONS BETWEEN THE SIZES OF MUNICIPALITIES ON THE ONE HAND, AND THE DEGREE OF MOTORISATION, AVAILABILITY OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT, DISTRIBUTION OF TRAFFIC INTO JOURNEYS TO WORK AND SHOPPING TRIPS, ALL SERVE TO DESCRIBE THE REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF TRAFFIC. THE AUSTRIAN LAWS GOVERNING THE REGULATION OF PRIVATE TRANSPORT AND THE INCREASE IN THE ATTRACTIVENESS OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT ARE DISCUSSED IN THE CONTEXT OF CONURBATIONS. EXAMPLES ARE CHOSEN FROM UNDERGROUND RAILWAY PLANNING, THE ACCELERATED PROGRAMME FOR TRAMS, PRICING POLICY IN VIENNA AND THE TRANSPORT AUTHORITY. THE EXTENSION OF AN INTEGRATED OPERATING SYSTEM OF RAIL TRAFFIC IS RECOMMENDED, SO THAT TANGENTIAL LINES WOULD PROVIDE AN IMPETUS (IN THE URBAN PLANNING SENSE) TO THE OUTER AREAS. THE DEGREE OF OCCUPANCY SHOULD BE INCREASED IN THE PRIVATE TRAFFIC SECTOR. OUTSIDE CONURBATIONS THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BUS SYSTEM SHOULD BE GIVEN PRIORITY, SO THAT THIS FORM OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT SHOULD ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT TO A FEDERAL SUBSIDY.
