The interactions between physical movement and telecommunications have long been promised to be a serious issue "soon"--the recent developments in information technology have on this occasion laid the necessary groundwork for the social and practical interactions between transport and communications to make a real impact. This paper covers a number of transport-oriented perspectives on travel and transport demand, and relates these to current computer-oriented concerns. The increasing social pressures for greater productivity are now driven by information technology, starting to affect professionals to an increasing extent. The number of the covering abstract for the conference is TRIS No. 393385. (Author/TRRL)
