Project description

The aim of this research is to identify differentiated development opportunities for the public transport nodes in Flanders, by confronting the accessibility of these nodes and the functional mixture of services that is present. Policy perspectives will be presented to differentiate between nodes/places where a more compact and extensive public transport fabric and/or service density is desirable.
