    This report, which is the final deliverable of the Optic project (Optimal Policies for Transport In Combination), summarises two years of collaborative research into the policy process of combining individual measures into policy packages.
    Six stages of the policy process are identified. This report gives practical and general advice for each of these stages:
    1. Define objectives and targets
    2. Create an inventory of measures, identify potential primary measures and detect causal relationships
    3. Assess policy package
    4. Modify package
    5. Package implementation
    6. Evaluate effects, introduce remedial actions
    In addition, this report explores in further detail indicators and tools for the assessment of policy packages; the management of barriers; and issues of transferability.
