AN ANALYSIS OF THE U.S. MARKET FOR AUTOMATED GUIDEWAY TRANSIT. VOLUME 2: URBAN AREA CASE STUDIES
UMTA's Automated Guideway Transit (AGT) program aims to determine where and under what conditions 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. This 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 Volume 2 examines 11 site-specific alternatives analyses within three representative urban areas, describing the results of case studies conducted in the Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas urban areas. Specific settings examined include corridors, central business districts, suburban activity centers, and medical centers. System design, ridership and cost estimates are reviewed for each site.
