Transport infrastructure and population density

THE efficiency of public transport infrastructure tends to be more efficient the more densely concentrated the local population – according to a paper just published, and which cites, among others, Glasgow.

Says the paper published by the think tank, Centre for Cities, the Spanish city of Barcelona is identified as being a densely-populated city and having, as a result, public transport accessibility that is “significantly greater than the UK’s largest cities (with the exception of London)”.

The paper, here, looks at Barcelona compared to Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester.
