NORTHEAST CORRIDOR HIGH SPEED RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT. TASK 7A. TERMINALS

An essential element of any intercity passenger transport system is the interface with local transportation--both public and private. In recognition of this critical interface, a major task was undertaken to recommend a development program for upgrading fourteen major rail passenger handling terminals in the Corridor. The program was designed to meet overall goals and objectives of convenience, capacity, attractiveness and other level-of-service characteristics commensurate with high quality transportation facilities. The report consists of terminal performance standards, inventories of existing terminals and vicinity access/egress facilities, and recommended concept development plans for the terminals, parking facilities and urban transportation infrastructures in which they are located. Preliminary estimates of costs associated with the development plans are also included.
