TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM MANAGEMENT: A HIGHWAY-TRANSIT CASE STUDY

This article describes how highway facilities and transit operations may be combined in a cost-effective way. The Illinois State Toll Highway Authority and Pace, the Suburban Bus Division of he Regional Transportation Authority, instituted a modest transportation system management project in cooperation with the Chicago Transit Authority and the Village of Rosemont. The project gives Pace express buses direct access from the Northwest Tollway to the CTA's River Road rapid transit station, reducing service running time and improving service reliability. The article describes the projects background, and its benefits, and outlines the potential use of this project as a prototype for future intermodal activities.
