A MULTIPLE-MODE TRANSPORTATION NETWORK DESIGN MODEL. VOLUME IV. (CHAPTER 8 PLUS APPENDIX)

Illustrations are given of some of the difficulties facing transportation planning methodology with respect to very broad issues in the area of generating alternatives and evaluating these alternatives on the basis of their consequences. The focus, particularly in terms of examples, is on the analysis of high-speed ground transportation systems. However, most of the discussion is equally applicable to a number of other transportation planning and decision-making problems. Essentially, concern is with the question of how well existing methodologies are matched to the real world problems of analysis and decision making with respect to large scale transportation improvements.
