A REVIEW OF CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS

Four types of urban passenger transport journey are distinguished and the characteristics of the transport systems needed to cater for them are outlined. This leads to a basic distinction between area or network systems and line-haul systems. Technical developments which will make the new systems feasible are outlined . Some studies of the application of particular systems are reported, both in hypothetical and concrete situations. Two major constraints on the adoption of new systems are then discussed: economic viability and environmental impact. The number of the covering abstract of the textbook is IRRD Abstract No. 212297. /TRRL/
