? Intermodality – Definition and Explanations

This article is dedicated to passenger transport. For the relevant concept in the transportation of goods, see the article intermodal transport.

L’intermodality is a concept that involves the use of several modes of transportation (Transport, from Latin trans, beyond, and portare, to carry, the fact of carrying something, or…) alone time displacement (In geometry, displacement is similarity that preserves distances and angles…). We are talking more specifically technology (The word technology has two de facto meanings 🙂 and/or different organizing body


Old version of rail intermodality

the transportation (Transportation is the act of moving something or someone from one place to another, most often…) the number of travelers has always been intermodal. People could do that to pass (The Passer breed was created by the French zoologist Mathurin Jacques…) of diligence (A horse-drawn carriage is a horse-drawn carriage for public transport.) ferry to cross a tea (In hydrography, a river is a stream of water flowing under the influence of …) very deep. In the 19th century century (A century is now a period of one hundred years. The word comes from the Latin word saeculum, i, which…). people were changing the train (A train is a controlled vehicle that moves on rails. A train consists of…) for ship (A ship is a human structure capable of floating on and around water…) To Dieppe to cross the Channel. This is the first type of intermodality that can be described as intersectionality: we change the mode of travel according to the constraints of the terrain. We try to prevent them separations (Ruptures is the second album in Orbital’s sci-fi series…) of to fill (Cargo means what it really is…) with developments (bridge, tunnel). It is found, for example network (A computer network is a set of devices connected to each other to exchange information…) railway: unelectrified line for TGV (TGV is a high-speed electric self-propelled train of French origin…)extension of the line with lowered regulations for passenger transportation with a bus, etc. It can also be due to economic constraints (the terminus of the heavy transport line, since the extension is not very busy, it is more appropriate to use it). transportation (A vehicle is a mobile machine that allows you to move people or goods from one place to another…) capacity) or organizational (no diametricalization of two lines to avoid propagation of delays) see policy (stopped line border (A border is an imaginary line separating two areas, especially two…) between two countries)

The second type of intermodality was born with the development railway (A railway is a controlled transportation system used to transport people and…) and its stations. Today, the public transport network serves stops distributed along the lines. They are separated from each other by a distance of several hundred to several hundred meters for the urban network kilometers (The meter (symbol m, from the Greek metron, measure) is the basic unit of length of the system…) for transcontinental airports. This raises the issue of serving areas further from these stops when the distance to be covered is greater than is considered acceptable for pedestrians (a few hundred meters in western cities). This is feeder intermodality.

In terms of transport policy, intermodality corresponds to the end of a single model, the complete car or truck, and the development of soft modes of transport (bicycle, pedestrian) or public transport (rail, car). share intermodal transport (In the field of cargo transportation, intermodal transport consists of the use of…) remains low: 1.7%together (In set theory, a set intuitively defines a collection…) Transport in France in 1994, 11% for the Paris region.

Evolution of transport networks

Modern transport networks are increasingly expensive. The logic (Logic (from Greek logikê, logos (λόγος),…) Aiming to reduce these costs leads to an increasing prioritization of reducing them number (The concept of number in linguistics is considered in the article “Number…”) of lines and/or network nodes. Intermodality allows to support this reduction in nodes by adding to the first network a more local transport network that allows the influence of a transport node to spread over a network. territory (The concept of territory is becoming more and more important in geography and especially…) more wide.

A characteristic example of this hierarchy is the establishment of the principle messaging platform (The Franglais term hub (from the English hub airport) refers to this commercial concept…) into Air transport (Air transport is an economic sector that includes all its activities…). They have led to the creation of large airports where the schedules of domestic flights and “long-haul” flights are synchronized, landing and landing uncertain (A wave is an oscillating motion of the surface of an ocean, sea or lake. The…). Around (Autour is the name given by French bird nomenclature (update)…) are developing secondary airports correspondence (Correspondence is usually an exchange of mail extending over a long period of time. The…) first with transcontinental flights airport (The airport is a set of buildings and facilities of the airfield that…).

At the local level, intermodality therefore leads to a polarized network around it station (A station is usually a place where trains stop. A station includes various facilities that…) intermodal.
