THE INFORMATION NEEDS OF RESEARCH IN TRANSPORT PLANNING

This review concentrates on passenger transport in urban areas. Systems described and illustrated include high speed (10 mph) pedestrian conveyors; automatic tracked vehicle systems, offering a local network service and a more extended corridor service; rapid transit systems; and finally inter-city traffic, including road, rail and air transport. Some guidelines are given regarding the overall assessment of transport systems in terms of their interaction with each other. Economic, social and environmental cost benefit considerations are also considered. /TRRL/
