Integrated Transport Strategies

This chapter describes how there has been growing interest in recent years in the development of integrated transport strategies. Their origins can be traced to a growing realization that a “predict and provide” approach was unlikely to provide a solution to growing transport problems, an acceptance that efforts to improve the supply of transport had to be matched by measures in order to control transport demand, and heightened interest in the role of land use planning as complement to transport policy. This chapter provides a set of possible definitions and outlines the possible principles on the basis of which integration might be achieved. The chapter then considers in greater detail two possible approaches; the pursuit of synergy and the removal of barriers, and it illustrates these with a number of examples taken from predictive analyses. It then considers the role of sensitivity analysis as a means of identifying possible combinations of policy instruments. The chapter concludes with broad guidance on the ways in which pairs of policy instruments might be combined in order to achieve integration. The techniques for developing optimal transport strategies offer an analytical approach to the design of integrated strategies.
