Integration and Planning

On line training tool:  Integration (and Planning)

Introduction – A true integrated urban transport system is the physical integration of public transport services, fares, ticketing, infrastructure provision, management, pricing, and integration of transport authorities. Besides this integration between general transport policies and others viz., education, healthcare, social services sectors, environment and socio-economic development are also equally important.

Public transport integration benefits customers as well as operators and authorities.  Successful integrated public transport can increase modal share for public transport and boost patronage, both of which confer better returns to system operators and also reduce the costs by displacing private vehicular travel.

Planning and Integration of transport with other sector service provision (health, education, social services etc.)

Integrated planning and policy between transport and land use and other factors relating to sustainability
