This article reports on a project conducted at the California Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways (PATH) program in which the deployment and effectiveness of integration practices at U.S. transit agencies were examined. Focus was on those integration practices which had an immediate and direct impact on passengers’ transit travel routines. Transit agencies were surveyed on their integration practices related to infrastructure, schedule, fare payment, information, and special events/emergency conditions. The article gives highlights from three of the eight case studies that were conducted during the project. The three case studies summarized include: 1) infrastructure integration at the joint, inter-town regional bus route, the Coastal Link, in Southwest Connecticut; 2) fare payment integration at Sound Transit in the Puget Sound region of Washington State; and, 3) information integration through the TravInfo 511 traveler information program in the San Francisco Bay Area. The article concludes with a discussion of lessons learned from service integration experiences.
