TRANSPORT PLANNING AND THE POLICY-MODELLING INTERFACE

Evidence of the inability of transport models to elucidate policy is cited and reasons for this weakness are then suggested. Attention is drawn to the fundamental changes in both opinion and policy currently taking place. There is less concern with accessibility per se and rather more concern with the provision of adequate or minimum accessibility for certain social groups. More emphasis is placed also on the environmental aspects of transportation. The implications of these changes are outlined. It is not at all clear that the need to adapt and up-date models is appreciated widely enough. Finally, it is considered whether fundamantal changes in methdology may help to make transport models more responsive to policy needs.
