Abstract

The project aims at ascertaining the factors involved in the successful organisation and integration of the different rural and urban transportation systems available for enhanced mobility of commuter traffic and the maximising of the transport capacities of motor vehicles. Fixed route services, company-owed buses and carpools accepting private cars and designated buses are recommended, along with incentives for use of the new systems. The need for establishment of rural mobility centres, which provide transport information and organise and coordinate carpooling, is identified. The overall effect is seen as improving the lot of the non-motorised in rural areas and reducing the effects of motorised private transport in urban areas.
