Collective road transport infrastructural characteristics and spaces in the urban road regulation

Summary - The Road Regulation regulates the characteristics, uses and management of the several road elements for all the allowed traffic components. The collective transport is one of the priority components, especially for urban mobility, but it is generally neglected in the technical specifications of the current Italian Road Regulations. Starting from the critical issues that emerged from the analysis of existing Road Regulations and based on the international literature, professional experience and current legislation, the note provides technical standards about the infrastructural characteristics and the spaces to be allocated to the collective road transport. This is to be intended as a starting reference to develop the specific part of Road Regulation for urban areas. Although not completely exhaustive, the results obtained allow to frame the fundamental elements of the collective transport according to a systemic vision. Also, they recommend strong cooperation between the network managers and the technicians in charge of drafting the Road Regulations, to establish the most suitable standards for the urban area of reference.
