The paper calls for an essential reevaluation of transport planning methodologies and techniques to introduce non-motorized transport as a major component of a three-mode transport system (private transport, public transport, non-motorized transport) and to be carried throughout the transport analysis sequence from data acquisition to transport strategic planning and finally to preparation of short-term traffic improvement schemes. It is suggested that the overall goal of non-motorized transport planning be the increase of the desirability of these forms of transport in order to reduce energy consumption and to improve environmental qualities. Specific planning objectives of non-motorized transport planning should be: increased safety, improvement of network continuity and connection with the public transport system, capacity upgrading, enhanced desirability through higher levels of service, and better urban design strategics promoting land use mixes around urban activity centers. /TRRL/
