DUAL MODE PLANNING CASE STUDY, ORANGE COUNTY. VOLUME 1: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND PLANNING ANALYSIS
The volume is one of five which document two separate planning case studies examining the feasibility of dual mode transit systems in (1) Orange County, California, and (2) Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The main objective of this case study was to provide feedback to dual mode system design efforts. Before the dual mode system development proceeded to large-scale demonstration and testing, cost, performance, and demand relationships needed to be investigated analytically so that efficient design characteristics and operating regimes could be prescribed. The study incorporated a full-fledged technical planning analysis in a real urban area assuming that the required dual mode vehicles and control systems were available. Supply and demand relationships were parameterized so that the impacts of variations in factors such as access/egress time, guideway speed, headways, fare level, vehicle size, etc., can be determined.
