INTEGRATED TRANSIT-NETWORK MODEL (INET): A NEW URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING SYSTEM PROGRAM

The Integrated Transit-Network Model (INET) is a new Urban Transportation Planning System (UTPS) computer program for analysis of transit systems. Its objectives are to account for the interaction of highway and transit networks, exploit existing highway network data, provide for accurate but simple and inexpensive transit-network coding, provide input for other UTPS programs, furnish useful evaluative reports, and help bridge the gap between systems and operations planning. A small transit network is hypothesized to demonstrate INET's features and explain its assumptions, mechanics, and operation. Special subjects are route layout, cruise and stop delay time, exclusive and mixed rights-of-way, scheduling, and cost and impact estimates. There is a brief discussion of INET's use with real transit and highway data; the results testify to INET's exceptional simplicity and accuracy. (Author)
