REGIONAL OPENBAAR VERVOERSTELSEL AMSTERDAM (ROVA): STUCK BETWEEN TOWN AND REGION. TRAFFIC AND TRANSPORT POLICY BETWEEN RURAL AND URBAN AREA, TO AN INTEGRAL APPROACH ON REGIONAL LEVEL. TRANSPORTATION PLANNING COLLOQUIUM 1989, THE HAGUE, NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 1, 1989. VOLUME I

ROVA: PLAKMIDDEL TUSSEN STAD EN REGIO

Public transport is on the move. At national as well as at regional and local levels public transport is in the limelight. Evidence for this is provided by all the reports, planning notes, structure schemes and scenarios which give public transport an important role in the fight to decrease the use of the car. The growth of car use decreases the accessibility of urban areas, the quality of the living environment and traffic safety. Public transport is considered to be the solution which will decrease the vehicle kilometers travelled. However, for this to happen, the quality of the regional public transport connections must be greatly improved. Public transport, to and within the Amsterdam region is the subject of this paper. Attention is paid to the future concentration of houses and businesses within the region and its surrounding area. The need for an extension of the urban rail network into the region is studied. Possibilities to integrate the existing railway lines and infrastructure into a regional Amsterdam public transport system (regionaal openbaar vervoerstelsel Amsterdam rova) are presented. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 825702.
