  • Central urban renewal and development: Ensuring unrestricted passage for public transportation while avoiding car congestion

  • The potential and success of Park & Ride / Park & Go systems in cities with populations under 100,000
  • Designing cities with respect to future technical and social trends
  • Establishing public transportation in historic city centres - public opinion, difficulties, best practises.

Attracting new passengers
Tackling non-technical barriers and marketing

  • Public transportation has modernised rapidly. We have new vehicles and modern information and ticketing systems, yet it remains unattractive for an increasing part of the population. What more must be done to maintain current and win over new passengers?
  • Promotion of public transportation: Do campaigns make sense? Best practices
  • Tools for resolving problems with antisocial passengers, hygiene and fare dodgers
  • Which social groups are least willing to take public transportation? How can they be motivated?
