Public transport effects on road traffic: potential and limitations: motoring towards 2050: roads and reality

The use of roads depends on transport modes used by people and those moving goods. Clearly rail, water and airborne transport do not make direct demands on the road network, but in many situations access to their terminals requires road transport. The use of public transport depends on its price and service characteristics in relation to current travel needs and these in turn depend on modal characteristics network coverage and capacity. This note looks at the use of public transport today, how it has changed over recent years and the role it is likely to play in future.
