MASS TRANSIT TECHNOLOGY: A COMPREHENSIVE SURVEY OF VEHICULAR HARDWARE

An inventory of mass transit hardware has been compiled, tabulated in an organized format and classified first according to the most appropriate functional usage and then according to physical attributes. Information conveyed includes background data, vehicle description, vehicle performance, system characteristics, land use, costs and considerations, significant advantages and disadvantages and illustrations. The inventory is to be reviewed not only as a collection of specific transit vehicles and example systems but also with attention given to the advances in vehicle component technology represented therein.
