DEVELOPMENT OF EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN METHODOLOGY FOR EVALUATING MASS TRANSIT DEMONSTRATIONS: AN APPLICATION TO THE SEATTLE EXPRESS BUS SERVICE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT. VOLUME 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, MAIN REPORT

UMTA has been actively involved in the process of funding full-scale demonstration projects in select metropolitan areas throughout the country. These demonstrations are carried out for the purpose of research, testing and evaluation of transit concepts with potential nationwide implications. One major objective to be accomplished is the development of a systematic and effective means of evaluation which will enable UMTA to determine not only the effectiveness of the specific projects, but also the extent of applicability to other areas. The effort sought to accomplish this objective through three steps. The basic approach of the study was development of an experimental design, in Seattle, WA, where an express bus service demonstration project was initiated in 1970.
