COLLECTIVE TRANSPORT AS A VARIABLE IN SPATIAL SCENARIOS

COLLECTIEF VERVOER ALS VARIABEL IN RUIMTELIJKE SCENARIO'S

The Dutch governmental policy regarding mobility is ambiguous. At one side mobility has to decrease for environmental reasons, but on the other hand the Randstad, the densely populated western area in the Netherlands, needs more mobility. The ARGUS report into a new transport system for the Randstad breaks through the taboo for more mobility. The importance of mobility as a criterion for the development of new locations for working and living needs a polycentric, analytical method which gives an insight into the spatial structure of the urban area, and the ratio between the journey time between public and private transport. The newly developed Factor- transfer time-analysis makes it possible to study new hybrid systems which can better play into the polycentric structure of the urban areas. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 862192.
