Need of constant adaptation to public demand
Public passenger transport services
Building and spreading infrastructures is only one part of a transport system, although it is the one that requires the Government to make a major investment. Passenger transportation in urban areas involves complex systems, including multiple components that go beyond mere supply. Therefore, a careful and thorough analysis is needed to meet the masses’expectations as any other basic service.
The challenge of responding to a changing demand
Over recent years, researches and analysis on transport demand have played a key role in adapting supply to what the masses expected. Studying supply in order to optimize the investments made on infrastructure is not enough, since this is only one part of the system. Demand analysis studies people’s behavioral patterns and developments in mobility and hence it has become essential in order to reflect on the transportation network the changes suffered in individual and families’ socio-economic profiles.
Today, the challenge is even greater. Analysis cannot be confined to a single context of infrastructure extension. Analysis of demand and mobility behaviour is ongoing, since the behaviour of individuals varies over time depending on numerous variables. These variations impact on the entire passenger transport system.
Only through a deep understanding of these variations, through a dynamic analysis made from different perspectives and through measurement and simulation of impacts, a high quality service with great demand can be sustained.
