Factors necessary to the forecasting and planning of transport demand, particularly in a developing country, are enumerated. Determination of transport demand is based on material balances and transport balances in particular, interregional economic links, the magnitude of passenger traffic and the rising standard of living. The determination of the extent to which transport network is meeting demands is a complex problem. A comparison is made between the various modes of transport, e.g. road transport, railways, water transport and air transport. /TRRL/
