Public Transport: the basic level of mobility of all citizens must be guaranteed. In addition, how can public transport become and remain a sustainable alternative to motorized private transport in terms of cost, travel time and reliability? Especially in metropolitan areas, traffic problems and pollution levels should be reduced without restricting people’s mobility…
The comfort depends essentially on short distances to the stops, the frequency of service and quick connections. Good intelligibility of timetables and tariffs, as well as dynamic information and modern vehicles, are also part of a powerful solution. Of course, the reliability of public transport is the determining factor for its acceptance
Time advantages result from separate routes, intelligent priority circuits at traffic lights and intersection-free crossings. Completely independent routes such as the construction of subways are the most efficient but also the most expensive solution.
Of course, we take accessibility into account when planning. High capacity utilisation and profitability are also relevant success factors. An optimal result benefits the society and the environment!
