Integrated passenger transport (IPP)

What is an integrated passenger transport?

  • The new system of local public transport of passengers where all public transport (trains, buses , trams , boats…) is united in a common system of passenger transport in a particular region
  • For all public transport (trains, buses , trams , boats…) is applied a single (common) ticketing system throughout the region
  • Based on public transport and developed systems used by countries of the European Union and the world
  • Supported and recognized as an optimal system of the public transport in all the fundamental strategic European documents (White Paper)
  • The system most commonly uses precise timetables – departures from each stop are in regular intervals (eg. every 10, 20, 30, 60 minutes , etc.)
  • In the system there is a large sum of common positions (terminals) for the different types of public transportation (train, bus, tram, boat…) and it quick transfer is possible
  • Timetables in the system are aligned and provide quick continuing of the trip
  • The backbone of the system are rail systems (trains ,trams,…), for its environmental, energy and infrastructure benefits
  • Other public transport vehicles (buses) serve to the rail systems and thus use their great advantages at short distances


What is public transportation, if someone might not know? :-)

  • Shuttle service available to all citizens
  • Is available by purchasing fares
  • Vehicles: train, tram, bus, boat, plane, funicular, cable car, etc.
  • Vehicles are in use according to schedule
  • Timetables are available through booklets, billboards, internet and phone info
  • Public transport is divided into local (50 km distance) and remote


Advantages of public transport

  • Public transport is several times less polluting – per passenger
  • Public transport consumes considerably less operating energy per transported passenger
  • Public transport is several times more secure
  • Public transport takes up much less space than a personal (car jams, parking spaces, etc.)


The benefits of quality public transport

  • Enables simple connectivity between cities, suburban areas and rural areas
  • It allows citizens to choose easily the place of residence and place of work
  • It allows citizens to act in the city, but live outside of it
  • It allows people who live in the city easier access to the surrounding region for work and recreation
  • Stops emigration from rural environments and allows their development
  • Stops uncontrolled colonization of the cities and enables high-quality city planning
  • It allows long-term prosperity of the region and its quality spatial planning
