The journal is unique in that it considers all modes: Both heavy and light rail, ferry and bus, as well as occasional feature articles focussing on information, fares and ticketing, new technologies, accessibility and some of the political and environmental aspects of urban passenger transport; all considered within the context of the relationship between land use planning and transport.
