With the guidelines for integrated network design (RIN), a methodical approach exists in Germa-ny, which is the basis for the functional structuring of transport networks and provides infor-mation for determining the accessibility of central places. Using digital timetable data (GTFS data) and a network model based on OpenStreetMap, a multimodal router is set up to determine travel times of public transport with high spatial resolution (grid cells). Subsequently, one applica-tion of the RIN in the RVB and one in the MDV are carried out and the results are used to show which methodological weaknesses arise in the application of the current RIN in public transport. Based on the results, an alternative approach is presented, which shows that the selection of the relevant connections via the maximum transfer waiting times provides more plausible routes and that a better representation of the actual quality of service can be achieved by evaluating the connection-related quality of service (so as yet on a point-by-point basis) on a grid.
