THE MAIN FUNCTIONS OF TRANSPORT

LES GRANDES FONCTIONS DU TRANSPORT

Transport is not an end in itself: it is necessarily linked to another activity (work, leisure, culture, commerce, family life). Furthermore, deach journey is composed of a chain of successive elementary transport steps. Transport planning involves the linking of the options constituting the transport policy to the socio-economic objectives being pursued. From the point of view of the policy choices which are the elements of a real transport strategy, the author successively studies: urban transport, inter-urban public transport, transport and business logistics, transport and foreign trade. /TRRL/
