GP: Seamless linkage of modes - Austria PDF Print E-mail

Almost 360,000 people live in the greater Graz area (Graz and its environs), which is roughly one third of the total population of Styria. About 80,000 daily commuters are commuting to the city thanks to different dynamic industry sectors, particularly the motor vehicle industry, but most come by car.

It is estimated, that around 5000 cars are parked daily in Graz close to PT stops by commuters from the surroundings that switch to PT for inner city transport. In Mariatrost, a small scale solution became necessary after resistance of the local residents. If this first test is successful, it might be further extended. Other Park and Ride spaces have also been created together with a guidance system. In the beginning, the acceptance was not so high, however, after parking has become more difficult in the inner city due to an extension of the zones with short duration parking only), usage is good. Additional roofed Bike and Ride Facilities have been created.

Linkage station

At the PT stop of Andritz a better linkage between (local and regional) buses and trams was created by reconstructing the whole tram (end-)station. Platforms were created close to each other. The plans for the buses were reconsidered such as to prevent them to have waiting times at the station. This allows for more buses to serve passengers within a given time interval. Pedestrian access to and within those stations has been facilitated, and waiting areas are clearly separated from the tracks and stops.
Three other large linkage stations are under planning (Don Bosco connecting tram, bus and regional railway; Puntigam connecting tram, bus and regional raiway; Liebenau connecting tram and a new large Park and Ride).
Through electronic guidance systems, the interconnection between modes without waiting time is guaranteed on these and all other important interconnecting public transport stops.

Tangential bus lines

New tangential buslines were implemented, which allow travelling between outside city districts without having to take the slow detour through the city centre.
