STRUCTURING THE URBAN AREA TO MAKE BETTER USE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT

A study is made of changes which might be made to urban development patterns and trends, to facilitate improvement to public transport services. The implications of encouraging higher densities around existing railway stations are analysed. Alternative urban forms, appropriate to the characteristics of demand bus and fixed-route bus services, are proposed and discussed. Major diversified centres are postulated as potentially useful components of an urban structure suited to public transport systems. (TRRL)
