HAMBURG URBAN TRANSPORTATION MODEL (A LESSON IN BALANCED TRANSPORTATION)

THE CITY OF HAMBURG HAS DEVELOPED AN INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM IN WHICH BUS LINES EXTEND FROM AND FEED THE SUBWAYS AND RAILROADS INSTEAD OF COMPETING WITH THEM FOR PASSENGERS. THE SYSTEM WAS DEVELOPED IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE MASS TRANSIT MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN COMMUTING BY AUTOMOBILE, AND THUS TO SAVE THE CITY FROM CONJESTION. PARKING LOTS WERE OPENED AT BUS AND RAILWAY STATIONS TO LURE MOTORISTS. BUS ROUTES WERE ALTERED TO COORDINATE SCHEDULING, AND NEW SUBWAYS ARE BEING CONSTRUCTED. EVENTUALLY TAXICABS WILL BE FITTED INTO THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AS WELL.
