REGIONAL INTERCHANGE DESIGN. PLANNING FOR PASSENGER TRANSPORT INTEGRATION. PROCEEDINGS OF A CONFERENCE HELD IN NOTTINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM, MARCH 1984

The author considers the design of regional interchanges and finds three main areas for consideration - the size of the interchange locations, timetable co-ordination and guarantee of connections and the co-ordination of fare prices. A large number of transport route connections concentrated at a small number of interchange points is the preferred structure of both operator and user. The size of an interchange must allow for spare vehicles to allow flexibility. Suggestions are made for creating a useful and interesting environment to help pass waiting time. The system in Hamburg is described where 3 zones give different priority to public and private transport and many park and ride schemes are in operation. Passenger waiting time is identified as actual time and perceived time spent waiting and suggestions made for improving both. The problems of synchronising the services of different companies and different modes are examined. The purchase of additional tickets is a particular cause for delay, a 'through-fare' policy is discussed. Having considered these factors good marketing is seen as essential. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 830760.
