THE PHILADELPHIA-LINDENWOLD TRANSIT LINE

THE PHILADELPHIA-LINDENWOLD LINE IS A JOINT PROJECT OF PENNSYLVANIA AND NEW JERSEY BUILT BETWEEN 1966 AND 1969. THIS ARTICLE REVIEWS THE GROWTH OF THE SYSTEM, ITS OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE COSTS, AND ITS RIDERSHIP. IT ALSO DESCRIBES SUBURBAN ACCESS TO THE SYSTEM AND THE COMBINATION OF AUTOMATED AND MANUAL CONTROL OF THE CARS. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT THIS SYSTEM IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW AN EXCLUSIVE-LANE, GRADE-SEPARATED RAIL FACILITY CAN PROVIDE A MAJOR URBAN AREA WITH A SUCCESSFUL ALTERNATIVE TYPE OF COMMUTER TRANSPORTATION.
