The scarcity of land in the urban setting requires us to think creatively in order to ensure that land is available for multiple uses. One of these uses is transport, in order to guarantee citizens’ mobility. Transport Planning consists of searching for the difficult balance between minimum occupation of land and universal accessibility to the transport system.
