All in all, this training module will mainly focus on public, and other sustainable means of transport (such as cycling) and their integration with public transport in order to be more sustainable, and more attractive to all of their potential users. Effort has been put into designing favourable conditions for public transportation to steer the transport development of entire municipalities, and addressing problems faced by special groups, such as seniors and the less mobile population. The module addresses all aspects of public transport, such as economic and financial concepts as well as environmental aspects. Furthermore, it includes working on small scale projects (mini-projects) giving you the opportunity to set your newly acquired knowledge into action. close
