TRANSPORTATION CENTERS

A KEYSTONE TO AN URBAN TRANSPORTATION BALANCE WOULD BE A COORDINATED SYSTEM OF TERMINALS OR TRANSPORTATION CENTERS THAT ENHANCE RATHER THAN IMPEDE THE EFFICIENT FUNCTIONING OF THE URBAN TRANSPORT SYSTEM. THE TRANSPORTATION CENTER ATTEMPTS TO DEPICT A BASIC CONCEPT OF EFFICIENT TRAVEL-MODE INTERCHANGE THAT HAS BEEN EMBODIED, TO VARYING DEGREES, IN COMPREHENSIVE URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING. THE FUNCTIONAL OBJECTIVE OF SUCH A CENTER IS TO PROVIDE SIMPLE, DIRECT, CONVENIENT, SAFE, COMFORTABLE, FAST, AND ECONOMICAL OPPORTUNITIES TO ACCOMPLISH A DESIRED CHANGE OF TRAVEL MODE. A CAREFUL EVALUATION OF THE NEEDS FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION CENTERS IN THE LIGHT OF THE INDIVIDUAL TOTAL URBAN TRANSPORT PLAN WILL ACHIEVE A BALANCED SYSTEM, WITH CAPACITY TO MEET FUTURE NEEDS IN AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, EFFICIENT AND CONVENIENT MANNER. /AUTHOR/
