RAPID COMMUTER TRANSIT FOR MEDIUM SIZED URBAN AREAS

The approach to the problem took into account present and future travel, public attitudes and preferences available on-site facilities and state-of-the-art equipment, and the interest of local businessmen, financial agencies, and government officials in solving the problem prior to its continued development. Chapters include: An inventory of existing conditions in the Corridor; models and forecasts (1995) of planning and travel data; alternative transit concepts such as priority lanes and ramp metering; detailed analyses of the most promising transit alternatives; recommendations for the provision of high quality transit service in medium-sized urban areas; and the extent of applicability of these recommendations to medium-sized urban areas throughout the U.S.
