AN ANALYSIS OF THE U.S. MARKET FOR AUTOMATED GUIDEWAY TRANSIT. VOLUME 1: NATIONAL MARKET ESTIMATES
UMTA's Automated Guideway Transit (AGT) program aims to determine where and under what conditons AGT service characteristics will satisfy the travel needs and socioeconomic requirements of urban areas in a manner that is competitive with or superior to other transportation alternatives. The 3-volume study investigates the potential of single line AGT relative to current non-automated transit technologies to provide transportation in urban areas and to contribute to the revitalization of urban areas. The study examines 3 general areas: (1) a national market estimate based on data from 46 urban areas; (2) 11 site-specific alternatives analyses within three representative urban areas; and (3) a two-phased consumer survey to determine individual preferences toward AGT. The purpose of the market estimate study is to develop a national forecast of the market for AGT applications based on an analysis of global costs and benefits.
