Walking distance to stop determines tram and bus use

Wandelafstand naar halte bepaalt tram- en busgebruik

This autumn, the public transport plans for the transport regions will be finalized. As a result, connecting bus lines will be canceled in many cities from the end of 2021. on core lines many intermediate stops on existing or 'straightened' routes disappear. Certainly in an urban environment, with shorter journeys, the walking distance to the nearest stop largely determines whether people choose the car, the bus or the tram. The Travelers Association advocates a moratorium on cancellations of stops in urban areas. Example: case study Ghent.
