Modelling the Implications of New Public Transport Technology: an Approach Using Artificial Intelligence

  • Roger L. Mackett
Part of the Transportation Research, Economics and Policy book series (TRES)


This paper is concerned with the issue of improving urban public transport and so improving the quality of the environment. In particular, it is based on the premise that in Britain, public transport is not given the same emphasis as in continental Europe and that there is a need to learn from experience there.
