THE INTEGRAL TRANSPORT SYSTEM (I.T.S). IN: EXPERT MEETING AND SYMPOSIUM ON THE SEMINAR ON FUTURE ROAD TRANSPORT SYSTEMS AND INFRASTRUCTURES IN URBAN AREAS, JUNE 4-6, 1991, CHIBA, JAPAN

The ITS concept is based on two complementary transport system modules. There is a high-speed module (HSTT) for fast, medium and long-distance shuttle transport of both passengers and commodities via un underground vacuum tunnel system and a collection and distribution transport module (CDT), which provides a variety of efficient door-to-door transport connections. ITS is intended to become a European network connecting major industrial/population centers with main air/sea ports in such a way that environmental demands can be fulfilled within a steady growth of mobility and yet be free of unsolvable congestion problems.
