Jam-packed buses, delayed trains - for many people, public transport evokes negative associations. That’s too bad, for actually it deserves applause. Public transport doesn’t just take people from point A to point B; instead, it’s an indispensable part of an inclusive and sustainable society.

What you can expect

Comfortable, flexible, and time-saving – that’s how most people rate driving a car. Public transport doesn’t score as high; it's generally considered to be too slow and burdensome. A car offers spontaneous mobility: Car drivers decide when they get in their vehicles and drive off. Public transport can hardly keep pace with this spontaneity. To make public transport more attractive, you need high frequency and good coverage. 

Frequency alone does not make public transport a top service. We listed crucial points you need to consider for your planning.
