The transportation study area

  • R. J. Salter


The area of a country covered by a transportation study will depend upon the geographical distribution of the trip patterns which are of particular interest to the study organisers. The study area has been defined as the area within which trip patterns will be significantly affected by the implementation of any resulting transport proposals. It is important that sufficient thought be given to the boundary of the area because within the boundary the transport information is collected in considerable detail and the resulting cost of data collection will be largely related to the location of the boundary.
