The effectiveness of public transport often depends on how long it takes
to change between different
modes of transport. This can become even more critical when it comes to
transferring from long- to
short-distance transport networks and vice versa. If "inter-connectivity"
between transport networks is
to be enhanced, measures focusing on improving "INFOconnectivity"
between transport networks and
their customers are indispensable. Highest possible effects in accelerating
passenger transfers may be
expected by introducing the concept of "intertwined information"
of and between transport networks.
The Expert Forum Traffic Guiding Systems serves the shared interests
of designers/planners, researchers, educators, suppliers, essential users,
transport authorities and the public hand that carries most of the costs
of public transport networks.
