13. Prerequisites  
14. Description of lectures
Characterisation, attributes and planning method of passenger transportation systems. Classi-fication of passenger transportation modes. Modelling the journey process in context of set-tlement structure. Creating travel chains. Multi-criteria analyses of passenger transportation systems. Quality assessment and service standards of passenger transportation. Planning of elements and processes of passenger transportation both in the individual and the public transport (e.g.: timetable). Implementation of intermodal and interoperable systems; passenger transport integrated by telematics tools. Sustainable transport planning, preconditions of the sustainability; soft mobility forms and their infocommunication support. Overview of the advanced, so called "transitional" passenger transportation modes (e.g. car-sharing, bike-sharing, car-pooling, chauffeur service, demand responsive transport) in system and process-oriented approach.
15. Description of practices
16. Description of labortory practices
Learn and practice the measurement, analysis and planning methods. Case studies. Independ-ent literature research supported by consultations. Student presentations. The students elaborate four (individually and/or in teamwork) assignments. The task should be presented.
17. Learning outcomes
A. Knowledge
  • The students know structure and operation of passenger transportation systems.
B. Skills
  • They are able to analyse and design passenger transportation systems and operational processes. 
C. Attitudes
  • The students strive for precise and errorless task accomplishment.
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  • They apply the knowledge with responsibility; they are able to work independently or in a team according to the situation.
18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
The students write 2 midterms (with theoretical and practical parts) and submit 4 student assignments. The mid-semester signature is obtained if both midterms are passed (at least half of the maximal scores) and all four student assignments are submitted and accepted (at least half of the maximal scores). The semester is finished by oral exam. The final mark contains the mid-semester performance in 50%.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
The midterms can be retaken according to Code of Studies. The student assignments can be submitted after deadline (if extra fee is paid).
