Transportation systems are complex and dynamic systems which are influenced by the advancement of economy, society, environment and technology. The application of novel solutions in vehicle and information technologies and the need for sustainability result in significant changes that alter travellers’ behaviours, too. In this book, the concepts, correspondences, technologies, fields of application and further development directions related to passenger transportation systems, travel modes and operation are examined. Since the passenger transportation system is transforming more and more into a special automated information system, the book deals with the modelling methods of complex information systems and the application of models related to transportation. We present, evaluate and compare novel travel modes and solutions and give a realistic scenario for the upcoming changes and opportunities. This book is the result of our continuous research. Primarily, we synthesize the long-standing knowledge that is the basic requirement of a master course (MSc). Hence, we use a high level of abstraction. We consider it important that MSc students realize the logical correspondences focusing on systems and processes, building on the knowledge they acquired previously, during their BSc courses. Thus, the graduates can take a significant part in the operational management, as well as the planning, research, development and innovation of complex systems.
