The resolution of measures related to multimodal trip making and corresponding network designs are identified by solving a multiobjective optimisation problem. Methods to analyse the resulting Pareto set provide insight into how total travel time, CO2 emissions, urban space used by parking and costs relate. In the Randstad case study increasing frequencies appears to be more effective to improve sustainability than introducing P&R facilities and train stations.
