A TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT OF TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DESIGN IN THREE CASE STUDY COMMUNITIES

Described is a method of technology assessment capable of evaluating transportation alternatives for a variety of city sizes, land-use patterns and socioeconomic characteristics. It is an abstract technology assessment format capable of generic evaluation over a hierarchy of city sizes, shapes and modal transportation technology characteristics using unit cost and impact data. A research agency is able to rapidly examine sensitivities and boundaries of rational or optimal transportation investments. This examination may occur over a group of similar or different regions and may draw significant conclusions about the mix of transportation technology investments most likely needed and capable of compatible operation.
