Integration of transport modes


By Admin / Updated: 12 Nov 2015

Definition – This refers to the process of making journeys that use a range of transport modes more convenient and efficient. The integrationinfo-icon of transport modes can facilitate intermodalityinfo-icon (the completion of a single trip using two or more different modes of transport) and multimodalityinfo-icon (the use of different transport modes for different trips).

Relevance to SUMP – Measures that improve the integration of transport modes can help to promote a shift to the use of sustainable transport modes and therefore contribute to achieving the overall objectives of a SUMP. For example: the implementation of integrated ticketing may broaden the transport options considered by a person when making different trips; and the provision of high quality cycle parking and storage facilities at train stations may encourage more people to make intermodal trips.
