Modal comparisons are defined as those studies in which an analyst compares urban transport modes with each other in a generalized framework, attempting to assess relative advantages and disadvantages of modes under a variety of conditions. This paper establishes a link between comparative analyses of transport modes and urban planning processes and generates a basis both for a normative theory of modal comparisons and for a critique of existing works in this field.
