Automated transit system simple and continuous span concrete elevated guideway structures are analyzed to determine the influence of structural design properties and construction tolerances on vehicle ride-quality and guideway cost. Ride quality has been determined as a function of guideway rigidity, span surface roughness, span vertical misalignment, span camber and pier misalignment as well as vehicle speed and suspension properties. Guideway costs have been computed as a function of span length, cross-section shape, method of construction, degree of continuity and overall construction tolerances.
