The Future for Interurban Passenger Transport

Bringing Citizens Closer Together

image of The Future for Interurban Passenger Transport

Economic growth, trade and the concentration of population in large cities will intensify demand for interurban transport services. Concurrently, the need to manage environmental impacts effectively will increase. How successful we are in coping with demand will depend on our ability to innovate, to manage congestion, and to improve the quality of transport services. Technological and regulatory innovation will shape the future of transport.

These conference proceedings bring together ideas from leading transport researchers from around the world related to the future for interurban passenger transport..  A first set of papers investigates what drives demand for interurban passenger transport and infers how it may evolve in the future.  The remaining papers investigate transport policy issues that emerge as key challenges: when to invest in high-speed rail, how to regulate to ensure efficient operation, how to assign infrastructure to different types of users, and how to control transport’s environmental footprint by managing modal split and improving modal performance.

The Contribution of Strategic Environmental Assessment to Transport Policy Governance

International Transport Forum

Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), understood as a practice that aims to incorporate the environmental dimension into strategic decisions such as policies, plans and programmes, already has a substantial tradition. According to Dalal-Clayton and Sadler, the formalization phase of this instrument began in the early 1990s, and its international dissemination can be said to have started in 2001 (Dalal-Clayton, Sadler, 2005).
