Improving access to public transport guidelines for transport personnel by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( file )
19 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and French and held by 525 libraries worldwide
Accessible, user-friendly transport means that disabled and older people can use the transport system without hindrance to participate in society on an equal basis without losing their independence. Whilst much progress has been made in all modes of transport to make travel easier and more pleasant for all passengers, it is the attitude and skill of the driver, captain, pilot, etc. that can make the difference between a pleasant and safe journey for a disabled or older person and one that is fraught with worry, frustration or confusion. These guidelines are designed to encourage understanding
Investment in transport infrastructure in the 1980s by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
20 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and French and held by 443 libraries worldwide
Implementing sustainable urban travel policies : moving ahead : national policies to promote cycling by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
39 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 429 libraries worldwide
Cycling is an essential part of intermodal urban travel. While trends in car use continue to grow, cycling is increasingly recognised for its contribution as a clean and sustainable mode of transportation. This report brings together the experience of 21 countries and 7 municipalities in developing and implementing policies and measures to promote cycling as a means of travel. Based on the findings of the study, a Declaration on National Cycling Policies for Sustainable Urban Travel was agreed by ECMT Ministers at their 2004 Ljubljana Council. With this Declaration, Ministers recognized for the first time the importance of a national policy and institutional framework for promoting cycling
Improving transport accessibility for all guide to good practice by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Computer File )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Turkish and held by 412 libraries worldwide
"Much has been done to improve the accessibility of transport systems in recent years. The ECMT has prepared this Guide to Good Practice in order to facilitate such an exchange of experience. It addresses both countries where improvements to accessibility are under way, and those that are just now making that commitment. With examples from recent experience in a wide range of countries, this Guide updates the ECMTs 1999 Guide, pointing to areas where progress has been made as well as to those where challenges persist. In particular, it covers principles for provision of information generally, how to improve information regarding the road and pedestrian environment, how to improve information provided within transport infrastructure, how to improve information provided relative to transport vehicles, new and innovative transport services, and private cars, and the roles of government."--Publisher summary
Road safety performance national peer review : Russian Federation by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Computer File )
16 editions published in 2006 in English and Russian and held by 397 libraries worldwide
The Russian Federation has the highest road death rate of all ECMT member countries and contributes one third of all road deaths in these countries. This report finds that the problem is predominantly urban, concentrated in Russia's largest cities, and with particularly sharp increases in deaths and serious injuries experienced in the Moscow region. International experts who undertook this review confirm that substantial improvements in road safety can be achieved through concerted, sustained and evidence-based action, and they make a series of recommendations on how this can be done
Transport links between Europe & Asia by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( file )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 372 libraries worldwide
Land links between Europe and Asia can offer a viable alternative to sea transport. They substantially improve the accessibility of the countries they pass through and can absorb a substantial portion of the growth in intercontinental traffic, particularly container traffic, that has been forecast. However, the provision of efficient land links between Europe and Asia requires appropriate policy decisions on issues such as the development of adequate infrastructure and the removal of regulatory or institutional barriers that prevent the development of efficient transport services
Speed management by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Computer File )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 369 libraries worldwide
Speeding is responsible for around one third of the current, unacceptably high levels of road fatalities. Reducing average speeds on the roads by only 5% would save around 20% of current fatalities. This report, prepared by a Working Group of the Joint OECD/ECMT Transport Research Center, addresses the key issues and highlights the improvements in policy and operations needed to reduce the extent of speeding. It outlines a framework for achieving the best possible safety outcomes while protecting the environment and supporting sustainable mobility
Inland waterways & environmental protection by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Computer File )
13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 364 libraries worldwide
This report reviews experience in mitigating the environmental impacts of inland waterway development. It examines effective consultation and planning procedures across Europe. In particular it assesses the ways in which the EU Water Framework Directive affects the planning environment for international waterways and sets a new agenda for improving the ecological value of waterways. It makes recommendations on good practice and identifies the Danube river basin as the critical area for improvement: This is where the efforts of international governmental organizations and NGOs could most usefully be combined to develop a basin-wide environmental protection and waterway development strategy.--Publisher summary
Transport and decentralisation by Table ronde d'économie des transports( file )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 353 libraries worldwide
Over the past decades, many OECD countries transport sectors have become more decentralized. This report examines whether the economic benefits and experiences of decentralization have been positive. It finds that the answers vary according to the mode of transport, the type of decentralization, and transport users representation in the process of decision-making.--Publisher's description
National peer review : the Netherlands by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
28 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 351 libraries worldwide
Hungary in its post-transition period finds itself struggling with several problems in its urban travel systems. Urban roads are increasingly crowded, and car ownership and use are rising. As in many neighbouring cities in Central and Eastern Europe, Hungary's cities are wrestling with how to maintain a highly favourable modal share for their well-developed public transport systems, while saddled with the financial burden of ageing rolling stock and infrastructure. Unabated commercial and retail development in the periphery of cities with little access to public transport is further increasing demand for car travel. These are the urban travel challenges now facing policy makers at local, regional and national levels of government in Hungary, at a time when accession to the European Union is imminent. This report provides an analysis of the policy and decision-making structures that are framing the implementation of urban travel policies in Hungary. It also proposes ways in which progress towards more sustainable urban travel can be achieved
Railway reform & charges for the use of infrastructure by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( file )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 342 libraries worldwide
Over the last few years, much progress has been made in developing rail charges to ensure non-discriminatory access to, and efficient use of national rail networks. But in Europe the international dimension is still missing, particularly in terms of the freight market. Integration of European markets should provide great opportunities for rail freight transport to grow. This report shows how barriers to this growth - arising from differences in the way trains pay to use national networks - can be overcome. It recommends moving to a set of simple charges for freight that create similar incentives for the management and planning of train operations across national borders

Strategic environmental assessment for transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 268 libraries worldwide
Environmental impact assessments are an essential component of making decisions on transport infrastructure investments. Traditional procedures have proved ineffective for impacts that go beyond the scope of projects in isolation. Strategic environmental assessment has emerged in response, to address large scale effects including impacts on traffic across networks, impacts on climate change and biodiversity and the impacts of policy decisions as opposed simply to individual projects. This report examines recent experience in developing environmental assessment internationally and makes recommendations on maximising the effectiveness of this new tool
Strategic environmental assessment in the transport sector by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 262 libraries worldwide
Strategic environmental assessment is emerging as a tool for integrated decision-making on major transport infrastructure investments and in the planning and policy making process more generally. The discipline is a new one, and by reviewing experience around the world, this report contributes to the development of effective procedures for incorporating adequate environmental assessments in all strategic transport sector decisions
Vehicle emission reductions by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )
14 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 262 libraries worldwide
This report reviews vehicle emissions standards in Europe, Japan and the United States, providing the reader with valuable comparisons. It also examines incentives for sulphur free fuels - which can contribute to reducing both conventional air emissions and carbon dioxide. It describes emissions control technologies and the impact of emissions on health and the environment and assesses the adequacy of emissions limits for new passenger cars and heavy duty diesel engines
Changing patterns of urban travel by F. V Webster( Book )
