LOW COST URBAN TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES: A STUDY OF WAYS TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EXISTING TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Study was designed to survey and report on a variety of techniques for improving the utilization of the existing investment in transportation capital facilities. Concepts receiving primary attention were those directed toward reducing peak period transportation demand and/or increasing the carrying capacity of existing facilities. The idea was to identify and explore such low cost techniques, technologies, or management strategies with the hope that some would be found to serve as alternatives to increased investment in transportation capital facilties. A survey and analysis of twenty-one candidate techniques was performed to provide a balanced assessment of the promise of low cost alternatives.
