Structural Changes in Population and Impact on Passenger Transport

Report of the Eighty-Eighth Round Table on Transport Economics Held in Paris on 13-14 June 1991

European Conference of Ministers of Transport

Current changes in the structure of population, whether they relate to ageing or the radical modification of social practices, are of the utmost importance. Without dynamic new measures in the sphere of public transport, the private car will continue to be used more and more and what already seem to be insurmountable problems will be aggravated.

Round Table 88 seeks to determine the scale of these changes before analysing the various ways in which public transport can respond.
