DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS OF ANALYSIS FOR PLANNING TRANSIT SYSTEM COMPONENTS IN AND AROUND MAJOR ACTIVITY CENTERS. PART 1. TRIP CHAINING: THE BEHAVIORAL BASIS FOR THE DESIGN OF CIRCULATION SYSTEMS FOR MAJOR ACTIVITY CENTERS

The problem to be addressed in the project is that of developing a methodology for designing and evaluating alternative ways of providing a circulator service within and to/from various destinations in a typical MDC. Two main types of transit technology will be examined, the local circular bus and the automated people mover system. Other components that may be included in some designs include moving beltways and bus transit intercept stations. The methods will be developed in the context of a hypothetical but realistic major diversified center that will be constructed by making a composite of several of the MCA's located in the Seattle metropolitan area. The project will focus on the development of generic methods that can be used to design and evaluate MDC circulation solutions for any particular MDC of interest.
