INTEGRATION OF TRANSIT SYSTEMS. VOLUME 1. CONCEPTS STATUS, AND CRITERIA

The institutional, operational and physical forms of transit integration and the intermodal and interagency approaches are defined and discussed. Current transit integration efforts are described. Standards for evaluating existing transit systems are developed from a concept of an ideal system and typical deficiencies of U.S. systems and their causes are described. These standards are then used to evaluate and compare transit systems of London, Hamburg, and Paris with those of three U.S. urban areas. Criteria are presented for selecting demonstration projects. Also considered are benefits and costs involved in improving public transit through integration and related measures.
