Transport, energy & other public services
Public transport services use to require a complex business management. They can be provided by either private or public companies, be more or less integrated by modes, at urban and metropolitan scales, operate under more or less clear market regulations and be integrated together with land-use plans. Because of the growing demand of services both in more and less developed cities, mid and long-term planning of public transport services plays a critical role on the design of future visions. The development of new technologies closely related to transport, notably in the energy and communication technologies is an opportunity to improve safety, quality and affordability.
