Improving the accessibility of areas using public transport modes in various combinations (or even in combination with car) is one major goal of the concept of co-modality. For co-modality, the quality of interconnectivity is a major requirement to improve accessibility and indicators exist for measuring accessibility and interconnectivity of nodes. However, in this paper we argue that co-modality is not fully measured by most common indicators. Furthermore, in that qualitative aspects are key features of co modality, indicators do not provide enough information for ex-ante analyses.
