Abstract

"Background Sustainable mobility requires actions to reduce. the need for travel, to promote modal shift, to reduce trip. lengths and to increase efficiency of transport system. Public. transport could play an important role to solve part of the. needs previously reported. Starting from these remarks, the. present paper analyse the role, the importance and the impact. of land use characteristics to develop services able to compete. with automobile use. This analysis is carried out by studying. the real world case of the city of Rome in Italy.. Results The results of the test carried out highlight the. importance of density of residences and activities, the need. for a good quality access system to the transit services stops. and the importance of the configuration of the transit network,. identifying the best way to connect the different. districts of the urban area. However, single actions are not. sufficient to achieve a sustainable transport system: these. actions can be successful only if they are planned in a. complex unique system that helps the synergic development. of the effects of the single actions proposed."
