TRANSIT FACILITIES AND OPERATIONS - VOLUME 3: TRANSPORTATION CENTER

THE REQUIREMENTS, FOR THE FEASIBILITY OF DESIGNING A TRANSPORTATION TERMINAL FOR DOWNTOWN UTICA, NEW YORK, ARE EXAMINED. ITS PRIMARY FUNCTION WOULD BE TO SERVE AS A POINT FOR MODAL INTERFACE AT WHICH THE VARIETY OF TRANSIT OPERATIONS SERVING UTICA COULD BE COORDINATED. AT PRESENT THERE IS INADEQUATE COORDINATION OF INTERCITY BUS AND RAIL CARRIERS WHICH SERVE UTICA AND THE CITY'S PUBLIC TRANSPORT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. THE TERMINAL FOR THE PRIMARY MODE OF INTERCITY PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, THE MOTOR COACH, IS INADEQUATE AND DETERIORATED. THE RAILROAD STATION IS COMPLETELY ADEQUATE BUT UNDERUTILIZED. JOINT USE OF THE RAILROAD STATION BY THE RAILROAD, THE CITY'S THREE INTERCITY BUS CARRIERS, AND THE TRANSIT SYSTEM, WITH SUPPORTING TAXI SERVICE AND ADEQUATE AUTOMOBILE PARKING, SHOULD BE INSTITUTED. SEVERAL CRITERIA FOR A TRANSPORTATION CENTER ARE DISCUSSED AND APPLIED TO THE CITY'S TWO EXISTING TRANSPORTATION TERMINALS. DETAILED RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE CONVERTING THE RAILROAD TERMINAL INTO A MULTIMODAL TRANSPORTATION CENTER. /UMTA/
