Abstract

An increase of the share of public transport in the total number of travels within the transport network is a key aspect in the efforts aimed at achieving sustainable transport development. It is impossible unless the functioning of this branch of transport is improved, including particularly greater availability of public transport lines. The development of public transport IT systems was supposed to have improved at least the identification of demand for transport services. Practice has shown, however, that it is by no means as simple as that. The article presents a general idea of particular method of identifying the demand for public transport services. It is a method that operates outside of the public transport (PuT) system’s roads and means of transport. It also makes it possible to stimulate PuT use among people using private transport (PrT) on a day-to-day basis. To illustrate this, the article uses the Green Travelling Planner (GT Planner) functionality.
