Conference paper


When we think about the future of our societies, and more specifically the future of transportation, we normally have the industrialized countries in our minds. These are characterized by a higher standard of living as measured by the average annual income per person. We also find high rates of motor vehicle ownership. Important differences exist with respect to population density. As can be seen from Table 14.1, there is a wide variation in population density between the countries mentioned, ranging from 19 inhabitants per square kilometre for Sweden to over 350 persons per square kilometre in the Netherlands.
