A set of three models has been used to replicate, for purposes of planning and analysis, the behavior and transportation-system effects of points at which different modes and carriers interconnect in urban areas. Models of demand for transport-interface services, of transportation network response to terminal operations themselves are based on data for the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. Federal terminal policy is analyzed with respect to the policy-sensitivity of the models and to the possible use of the models in policy analysis. To make the system more useful in planning, the impacts of interface facilities on social, economic, and environmental matters are also investigated. An alternative-generation system is used to develop innovative interface concepts and techniques.
