PUBLIC TRANSPORT POLICY AND ITS EFFECT ON METROPOLITAN AREAS

POLITICA DEI TRASPORTI PUBBLICI ED EFFETTI SULL 'ASSETTO TERRITORIALE

An analysis of the regional, social, economic and administrative conditions which determine traffic flows, begins with a study of the four basic community sectors which generate and require transport: residence, commerce, industry and services. The importance of accessibility is emphasised and various fare and pricing policies favouring public transport are discussed. Planning policies which restrict the car from town centres, and some bus priority measures are outlined, and a discussion of financing policies covers state, private, and public investment. Finally, it is stressed that transport planning must be an integral part of the medium and long term urban planning program. /TRRL/
