EMCT. ROUND TABLE 47 (HAMBURG, 25 AND 26 JUNE 1979). SCOPE FOR RAILWAY TRANSPORT IN URBAN AREAS
A series of case studies of public transport in 14 European cities is followed by a summary of questionnaire answers given by the authors of the case studies. The cities did not include "agglomerations" of several million such as Paris and London with very special public transport problems but did include Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid, Brussels, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Lille, Liverpool, Milan, Munich, Naples, Newcastle, Oslo, and Vienna. Conclusions are drawn about the role of rail transit in urban areas and a number of general principles are developed concerning typological description of an urban district; volume of traffic and modal split; form and organization of public transport (fares, service, parking); financing and maintenance of vehicles; and economics (operating costs, fares policy, and subsidy).
