DEVELOPMENT OF CONGESTED AREAS BY MEANS OF PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT

ERSCHLIESSUNG VON VERDICHTUNGSRAEUMEN DURCH DEN OEFFENTLICHEN PERSONENNAHVERKEHR

After some introductory definitions and a description of the traffic situation in congested areas, the author establishes the necessity for more rapid developments in transportation. Interdisciplinary studies are required which would take into account the traffic-related, sociological and economic premises and which would have as their goal a co-ordinated total regional concept. Making use of the requirements of the OEPNV, considered from the viewpoints of the user, the operator and the community at large, certain fundamental considerations are identified in relation to the provision of rail-bound and non-rail-bound local transportation. Finally, alternative solutions and possibilities for improvement of transportation services in congested areas of large conurbations and in moderately congested areas are presented, and proposed for further research. /TRRL/
