Theoretical Model and Activities to Change the Modal Split of Traffic

  • Grzegorz Sierpiński
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 329)

Abstract

The article deals the most popular modal split model of traffic. Actualization of this model was also proposed. Especially with information from White Papers. Some of these documents have clearly indicated the development directions of transportation after 2010.

Contemporary transport requires complex solutions. There are more possibilities to urban travels like carpooling and urban bicycles etc. Full integration aimed at achieving the goal of implementing the sustainable transportation requires undertaking the physical activities from the traffic engineering domain, implementing a right transportation policy and informing the society about the changes undertaken. In this meaning activities to change modal split of traffic was shown.

Keywords
