AH2300 Transport and Society 7.5 credits
Transportsystemets roll i samhället
A well-functioning transport system is necessary for most human activities. It creates opportunities for the organisation of people’s daily life and the economic activities in societies. The advantages of a transport system must be balanced against the consequences for example: air emissions, climate threats, accidents and congestion. This course introduces the subject of transport planning and provides fundamental knowledge and abilities for subsequent specialised courses in transport systems. Societal objectives for a sustainable transport system are introduced together with transport planning principles and methods for transport analysis, forecasting and economic and environmental considerations.
