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 (automated) 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. This volume, Volume 3, describes the quasi-manual model used in the study, which can be used as a sketch planning model in other applications. A primarily manual sketch planning model for transit systems is developed, using only two computer steps (UTPS program UMODEL and UROAD) in a very simple application. Capabilities to quickly model a wide range of transit technologies and operating policies are built into the model. Default cost, environmental, and demand parameters are included.
