Introductory Article

In recent years, the focus of policy makers and transport planners has shifted from moving vehicles, to moving people and goods and seeking to moderate transport demand.With this shift has come a greater focus on optimising the use of the transport system, although this has often been on a modal basis or with a bias towards particular modes in order to maximise particular outcomes - for example economic or environmental.
