TIME REQUIREMENTS FOR JOURNEYS UNDERTAKEN IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY

DER ZEITBEDARF FUER REISEN IN DER BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND

ONE OF THE MAIN FACTORS INFLUENCING THE SELECTION OF MEANS OF TRANSPORT OR MODAL SPLIT, IS JOURNEY TIME. WITHIN THIS CONCEPT SHOULD BE UNDERSTOOD THE ENTIRE TIME REQUIREMENT OF A JOURNEY FROM THE POINT OF DEPARTURE TO THE POINT OF DESTINATION (FROM DOOR TO DOOR). IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO CALCULATE THIS TIME REQUIREMENT WITH THE GREATEST POSSIBLE ACCURACY, THE DIFFERENT TIME ELEMENTS OF PRIVATE VEHICULAR, RAIL AND AIR JOURNEYS ARE OBTAINED IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS - BY MEANS OF JOURNEYS BY PRIVATE VEHICLE UNDERTAKEN TO CALCULATE JOURNEY SPEED, BY MEANS OF CALCULATIONS (CALCULATIONS OF CONSTANT TIME COMPONENTS), BY INTERVIEWING TRAVELLERS, BY ASSESSING AVAILABLE LITERATURE AND BY GEOMETRICAL STUDIES. IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY, IT IS SHOWN THAT THE RAILWAY IS INFERIOR NOT ONLY TO THE AIRCRAFT BUT ALSO TO THE PRIVATE VEHICLE IN TERMS OF JOURNEY SPEED.
