MOBILITY EVALUATION FOR URBAN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

The paper discusses the concept of mobility relative to the provision of transportation services. Mobility calculations of potential value to current evaluation procedures are outlined. An example is given of a typical mobility calculation. The model has been focused on a corridor line-haul system and results suggest that such a system will not markedly improve existing transit mobility systems. The authors suggest that other methods should be explored before policies are finalised. The study includes a match factor between occupation and employment type in accessibility to employment. Alternative feeder transit systems to the corridor line with an improved collector service in the suburbs could increase mobility. /TRRL/
