      Travelling from A to B by public transport in any major city most often involves some kind of mode change. While such transfers are necessary even in the most sophisticated transport networks, there are some principles that make a journey by different forms of public transport as seamless as possible.

      Summarized here under the term Public Transport Integration, these measures aim at facilitating the use of any public transport mode available in a city or region to reach one s destination. Prominent features of Public Transport Integration include, for example, one single ticket for the whole journey, adequate transfer facilities, and coordinated schedules of different transport modes.

      This document aims at providing the reader with an overview of relevant literature on Public Transport Integration. Issues range from organizational and institutional aspects e.g. how an integration of different operators can be achieved and which role authorities may play to more technical aspects, such as the development of integrated ticketing systems. The reading list is organized as follows:

      General literature

      Case studies including includes best practices and projects from countries around the world

      Links to related projects, organizations and selected actors in the field of Public Transport Integration
