IMPLICATIONS OF FUTURE CHOICES FOR CORRIDOR TRANSPORTATION
Several ground and airborne options are compared over a wide range of corridor alternatives. Regions of applicability are defined for the air and ground modes. Demand is treated parametrically to evaluate the relationships of cost and competitive fares. Basic performance characteristics and desired station distance are evaluated for high speed corridor applications. A number of financing alternatives are identified which can provide sources of funds for the development of a corridor transportation system.
