PLAN FOR DEVELOPMENT OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES IN THE LOCAL COMMUNITY OF LUOPIOINEN

LUOPIOISTEN LIIKENNEPALVELUJEN KEHITTAMINEN

The aim of the research is to study the possibilities of integrating transportation services and to increase mobility in the local community of Luopioinen. The population of Luopioinen is 2600 and the population density is 8,1 inhabitants/km2. The proportion of persons over 65 years of age is 25 per cent. The sparse land use pattern and the substantial amount of lakes decrease the possibilities for maintaining an effective public transport system. The transport pattern and the difficulties are similar in many other small Finnish local communities. Public transport supply can be increased with custom-made integrated routes, which take into account the transportation needs of individual passengers.
