REDUNDANCY IN PUBLIC TRANSIT. VOLUME IV: STRUCTURE, COMPETITION, AND RELIABILITY IN PLANNING AND OPERATIONS
The study consists of 4 separate volumes, and it examines the problem of redundancy/duplication of transit services in the San Francisco Bay Area Transit System. Volume IV, this report, examines two propositions--(1) that during transit planning, redundant planning would increase the intensity of search for transit alternatives; and (2) that during operations, redundant modes would increase service reliability in the face of a variety of disturbances. In this report, the propositions are examined in three case studies--(1) a study of inter-organizational, redundant transit operations in the San Francisco Bay Area; (2) a study of modally integrated monopolistic transit operations in Washington, DC; and (3) a study of inter-organizational competitive transit planning in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
