The papers describe various aspects of passenger terminals, interchanges whose scope includes anything from a transit platform to a multimodal regional transportation center. Despite this broad spectrum, passenger terminals have common design elements which these five papers address. The first describes principles of different modes to have access to outlying rapid transit terminals. The second describes studies on boarding the alighting time requirements for bus and trolley services. The next paper contains an analysis of park-and-ride lots. The movements of pedestrians in transit stations is next discussed. TRB's Committee on Intermodal Transfer Facilities has developed a general outline and classification for the elements in a typical passenger transfer facility.
