Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The constantly increasing demand for services in the conveyance of passengers and goods requires purposeful conceptional studies in transport research and planning. The ascertainment of connections between settlement-structure and traffic-volume offers a suitable possibility to estimate range and aims of settlement functions, 6 groups of towns, based on urban structure characteristics (volume of outgoing and ending traffic, number of inhabitants, commuters, commuting-balance, railway-and road-connection, centrality of commerce, residents in town-proximity) are sorted out. These 6 groups of towns are characterized in detail and conclusions are drawn for further investigations. Examplified by the towns of the GDR.
