PLANNING FOR CONFRONTING TRANSPORT DEMAND DUE TO SPECIAL EVENTS: THE CASE OF THE WORLD EXPOSITION IN THE THESSALONIKI GREATER AREA

The transport system of a given urban area is normally designed to serve a certain number of trips. In order to deal with the demand arising from special events lasting for a fixed time period (e.g., Olympic Games), specific actions must be taken by the appropriate authorities so that an area can adjust to extra demand due to visitors of the special event. This paper describes the specific case of the Thessaloniki Greater Area (Greece) where such an event (EXPO 2008) is being considered. A methodological approach for examination of the potentiality of the Thessaloniki transport system vs. the trip needs of the EXPO is presented.
