LOW COST URBAN TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES: A STUDY OF WAYS TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EXISTING TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES. VOLUME I. RESULTS OF A SURVEY AND ANALYSIS OF TWENTY-ONE LOW COST TECHNIQUES

Volume I of this study details the findings of a survey and analysis of twenty-one low cost techniques designed to increase the effective processing capacity of fixed capital transportation facilities. Techniques were rated with particular attention to their potential processing efficiencies (volume increases or time reductions in moving people via existing transportation facilities). In addition, the evaluation considered various cost parameters, impacts on the disadvantaged, environmental and transportation safety factors, technical and institutional viability, and the expected response from travelers.
