Multimodal System Design Guidelines

The Commonwealth of Virginia over the past few years has embraced the goal of providing its citizens, businesses and visitors with a better multimodal and intermodal transportation system. To assist in implementing this goal the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) has undertaken the development of guidelines for planning and designing multimodal places and corridors. To assist DRPT, a consultant team was selected, and representatives from transit providers, local and regional transportation and planning agencies, state agencies, and professional organizations formed a steering committee to provide suggestions, ideas and information to make the guidelines as relevant and useful as possible. This document is the culmination of over two years of study, review and outreach to establish a basic framework set of guidelines for multimodal planning in the Commonwealth. It is important to note that these are guidelines and industry practices customized to a Virginia context. They are intended as a resource for local planners, engineers, designers, policy and decision makers, and anyone else engaged in multimodal planning throughout Virginia. Chapters include: Benefits of Multimodal Transportation, Multimodal Systems Plan, Multimodal Districts and Multimodal Centers, Multimodal Centers and Transit Oriented Development, Multimodal Corridors, Intersections, Developing Multimodal Centers and Corridors over time, Transportation Demand Management, and Implementation and Funding Best Practices.
