DER NAHVERKEHR--PROBLEME UND IOESUNGSANSAETZE. PLANUNG UND REALISATION VON NAHVERKEHRSSYSTEMEN ALS AUFGABE INTERDISZIPLINAERER FORSCHUNG UND ENTWICKLUNG

In this handbook, 18 competent practical and academic men from areas of industry, economy, transport and development report on the planning and realisation of public transport systems as an exercise in interdisciplinary research and development, as seen from their own field of experience. The contributions deal with economic and town planning aspects as well as sociological demands of the local traffic systems. In particular new modes of transport such as cabin taxis, elevated railways, compact railways, dual-mode buses and buses directed by computer according to requirements, all of which are currently at the stage of industrial development and testing, are dealt with in respect of their goals and their state of technical development. The handbook gives, in brief, a very good general view of the present development tendencies in public transport, whereby the questions of the reliability of traffic systems and the demand for them must remain open. /TRRL/
