TECHNICAL APPROACHES IN CO-ORDINATING PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The author describes his work in Cleveland, Ohio which was concerned with quantifying the level of public transport service and personal mobility. The criteria chosen for calculations on the level of service are coverage, linkage, frequency and speed. Category analysis is carried out calculating public transport opportunities and accessibilities on four different types of trips. This shows up weaknesses in some areas such as inaccessibility for shopping. Given a desired level of public transport investment it can be seen how to allocate improvements. Some useful results are obtained from the study. The discussion which followed is included. /TRRL/
