Key considerations for integrated multi-modal transport planning

This paper will start by outlining the limits of city transport policies and planning focused on road and car based infrastructure. It will then outline the main components of integrated multi modal transport plans. This type of planning is increasingly being adopted and to understand why, this paper will outline the potential benefits of such plans if they are well implemented. It will then focus on some of the components of how integrated multimodal transport planning needs to occur, including considerations on modal choice as well as integrating public transport with existing, often informal, private transportation sector. The final part of the paper will conclude with a summary the key success factors that need to be in place to realise the benefits of integrated multi modal transport planning.
