Definition: Passenger transport


This unit group consists of the accommodation with sleeping facilities associated with collective public transport and inseparable from it in terms of fare. It comprises cruise ships of all kinds (usually not using marinas to stay overnight), accommodation in scheduled passenger ships and sleeping-car and couchette accommodation in trains and motor coaches, and other accommodation in public or hired means of transport (e.g. horse caravans). This is a special category of accommodation in the sense that it is mobile.
