AN EVALUATION OF INTERMEDIATE-CAPACITY TRANSIT TECHNOLOGY

In recent times considerable effort has been made to develop and apply new or existing transit technology to provide capacity in the 6,000 to 20,000 persons per hour per direction range. Technologies in this range have been termed intermediate-capacity transit systems (ICTS) and include such systems as light rail transit, personal rapid transit, light guideway transit, etc. Typically these systems cost approximately one-third to one-half that of heavy rapid transit on a per-mile basis. The purpose of this paper is to provide a framework in which ICTS can be evaluated for a given city.
