URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION TERMINALS (COMMITTEE 14-YARDS AND TERMINALS)

It is noted in an introductory paragraph that the "GO" system in Toronto has been specifically designed to attract auto users and operates on a $2 million subsidy, which is considerably cheaper than the highways that would have to be built to carry the same number of persons. However, the fare revenues are generally expected to meet the operating and maintenance costs. The remainder of the article, which constitutes a report of the association's committee on yards and terminals, deals with service and storage yards for rapid transit passenger cars, stations and terminals (landscaping, general design, interior traffic flow, and waiting room size as parts of a typical station development plan; and site selection factors), vehicular parking at stations, and rail access to airports.
