ANALYSIS OF THE LOCATIONS AND FUNCTIONS OF THE TERMINAL INTERFACE SYSTEM

The report summarizes the findings of the first phase of a projected two-phase study of transportation terminal site-selection and design. The study was conducted for the Office of High Speed Ground Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation. The research described in this report focuses on the 'interface' between intra-city and inter-city passenger transportation modes; freight and goods transportation are considered only in so far as they influence the movement of passenger traffic. Similarly, the Phase I research program emphasized development of a methodological framework rather than empirical or theoretical analysis. The tone of the findings discussed here, therefore, tends to be methodological rather than substantive. They focus heavily on questions of problem definition and analytical format, rather than on the generation of immediate, substantive results. (Author)
