The objective of the study is to estimate the patronage, revenue and operating costs of five alternative transit systems in the Branch Avenue Corridor. These five alternatives include a base alternative, the Adopted Regional System (ARS) Metro alignment to the Branch Avenue and the South Capital Street busway, and four alternatives which include shuttle rail lines or a change in the ARS Alignment to Branch Avenue. The study was designed as a comparative analysis of these five alternatives. The study uses an analytical approach which combined the information from the extensive 'Traffic Revenue and Operating Cost' report with the travel demand models recently developed by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. The report contains a glossary of terms and a brief appendix.
