ANALYSIS OF SYSTEM TRADEOFFS TO IMPROVE ACCESS TO SPECIAL GENERATORS

SPECIAL TRAFFIC GENERATORS SUCH AS AIRPORTS, UNIVERSITIES, SHOPPING CENTERS, AND HOSPITALS, PLACE SPECIAL DEMANDS UPON THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. ALTERNATIVES HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED TO PROVIDE THE NECESSARY ACCESS AND REMOVE THE DETRIMENTAL ASPECTS OF EXTENSIVE ON-STREET PARKING DEMANDS. USING A COMPUTERIZED MODEL, TWELVE ALTERNATIVE SYSTEMS WERE TESTED FOR AN URBAN UNIVERSITY CAMPUS LOCATED WITHIN AN ABSTRACT CITY. IN ORDER FOR ANY SPECIAL GENERATOR ACCESS SYSTEM TO BE EFFECTIVE, CONSIDERATION MUST BE GIVEN TO ALL ASPECTS OF THE ISSUE -- PARKING POLICIES AND TRANSIT INNOVATION. MOST OF THE ECONOMIC TRADE-OFF ANALYSIS DEPENDED ON THE AMOUNT OF SUBSIDY PROVIDED BY THE GENERATOR. USERS BENEFITTED MOST FROM THE AUTOMOBILE ORIENTED SYSTEM AND CAR POOLS LOOKED PARTICULARLY ATTRACTIVE IN PROVIDING USER BENEFITS WHILE MINIMIZING ADVERSE COMMUNITY IMPACTS. /AUTHOR/
