OVER-THE-WATER PROGRAM DESIGN. VOLUME I: SUMMARY

THE POTENTIAL FOR OVER-THE-WATER (OTW) APPLICATIONS OF URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION WAS INVESTIGATED. THIS VOLUME CONTAINS A SUMMARY OF STUDY RESULTS WITH ATTENTION GIVEN TO BOTH TECHNOLOGICAL AND DEMAND-RELATED ANALYSES. WITH REGARD TO TECHNOLOGY, THE AUTHORS CONCLUDE THAT WHILE A "BUS-ON- WATER" CONCEPT SHOWS PROMISE, NO SUCH VEHICLE HAS BEEN SUFFICIENTLLY DEMONSTRATED. THE REPORT PROVIDES AN OVERVIEW OF OTW TECHNOLOGY (INCLUDING HYDROFOIL AND SURFACE EFFECT VEHICLE CRAFT); SUMMARIZES CURRENT RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TESTING AND EVALUATION; EXAMINES THE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY; AND REVIEWS OPERATING EXPERIENCE WITH OTW APPLICATIONS IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES. THE REPORT EXAMINES THE NATURE OF DEMAND, THE LOCATION AND MAGNITUDE OF DEMAND, AND IMPLICATIONS OF THE DEMAND ESTIMATE. /NTIS/
