INTEGRATION OF TRANSIT SYSTEMS. VOLUME III - TRANSIT INTEGRATION IN THE U.S. URBAN AREAS

This is the third of a three volume report designed to assess the potential for interagency and intermodal integration of transit systems in U.S. urban areas, drawing on an analysis of the successful experience of European systems. This volume deals with the application of techniques which have contributed to the success of European systems to three major U.S. cities: Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle. This application of techniques was also tested in an archetypal smaller urban area, "Middletown." The procedure is described by which a selection was made of representative areas for investigation from the 243 SMSA'S in the U.S. Also described is a preliminary investigation of 30 major metropolitan areas and the further investigation of 17 others by means of literature searches, questionnaires, wish lists, and field investigations, The report then reviews the final selection of three areas where different European approaches to integration could be applied. The report contains a number of profiles and includes an assessment of the transit integration potential in Baltimore, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, and San Diego. Suggested programs for transit integration are presented for the three major U.S. cities and "Middletown." Discussions present descriptions of area characteristics, existing public transit services, Local transportation planning and efforts at transit integration, and a program outline to integrate the metropolitan area public transit services. Appendices are included.
