However, because each mode of transportation evolved independently of the others, they are not well integrated. As a result, it is difficult to transfer passengers and freight from one mode to another. Furthermore, some modes are overused, creating delays and hazards, while other modes are underused and have excess capacity. The NCIT believes that the overall contribution of the national transportation system can be increased by the creation of an intermodal system based on a more balanced and rational use of all modes of transportation.

All have a part to play, transport operators, local and central authorities, developers, investors and designers, but it is the vision of designers which will act as a catalyst to both the process and the product.
