The study investigates the feasibility of extending a rapid transit line, in the median of the Dulles access highway from its projected junction with Interstate 66 to the Dulles International Airport, to be operated in conjunction with the Washington Metro System. The report encompasses requirements for right-of-way, fixed facilities and vehicles, and alternative methods and schedules of operation. Estimated capital and operating costs related to these factors have also been developed. Forecasts have been made for various time frames to estimate the numbers of travellers who would make use of this service, and revenues generated by this traffic have been projected. (DOT abstract)
