DUAL MODE PLANNING CASE STUDY - MILWAUKEE. VOLUME 1: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND PLANNING ANALYSIS
This study analyzes the operation, economics, and impacts of dual mode transit systems in an urban case study setting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A dual mode transit system is one which utilizes vehicles capable of driverless operation on a reserved guideway and manual operation over streets and highways. Therefore, this system is theoretically capable of providing no-transfer service to transit patrons. The study is exemplary for at least three reasons: (1) the innovative methods for examining futuristic technology is an actual urban setting; (2) the interaction of the researchers with a group of technical experts from government and industry; and (3) the high quality and comprehensiveness of the report. In this report both manual and computerized sketch planning model systems are developed to analyze dual mode systems and a parametric analysis strategy is developed. This volume, Volume 1, describes key results of the study and only a brief summary of methodology is given.
