To plan and design a bus-rail mode-transfer facility within a freeway interchange of a transit-freeway transportation corridor, planners and engineers must consider the integration of all transportation facilities. In particular attention should be paid to: (1) The relationship of traffic access location and the freeway interchange; (2) interchange-intersection traffic operational efficiency; and (3) mode-transfer facility access concepts and internal circulation concepts. Major cities in North America have constructed multimode transportation corridors and with them has come the need to provide good access and efficient bus-rail intermodal transfer developed on sound planning, design and operational concepts. To establish these concepts, "Planning Considerations" are presented, including: (1) Interchange configuration influencing mode-transfer facility location and access; (2) multimode transportation corridor system design; (3) integration with arterial street systems; and (4) bus, auto, and passenger traffic generation.
