This working paper outlines an appraisal framework for the Integrated Transport project. The project examined the demand implications from the introduction of a Taktfahrplan timetable onto the east coast mainline rail route. The Taktfahrplan concept is frequently referred to as an interval timetable and is based on trains leaving stations at the same time past the hour throughout the operational day. A stated preference exercise was conducted to estimated what values people placed on such a timetable and these values were added to the more conventional elements of generalised cost to obtain the changes in demand that would result from the introduction of a Taktfahrplan.\ud The working paper is divided into a number of sections that will highlight,\ud • the key implications to arise from the Integrated Transport project;\ud • the demand model;\ud • the appraisal framework;\ud • the data sources used within the appraisal framework; and\ud • the results of the appraisal framework.\ud Interested readers are also referred to the a conference paper that will be presented at the European Transport Conference in Strasbourg later this year (Wardman et al, 2003)
