PARK AND RIDE: THE DALLAS PROGRAM

As part of the Dallas Urban Corridor Demonstration Program, a park-and-ride facility was developed as an incentive for automobile users to switch to transit. The goals of the program were to improve the level of service on the North Central Expressway and to divert some of the 160,000 trips projected for 1990, but improvements in air quality and energy consumption were also achieved. Because of the success of the initial park-and -ride facility, other facilities were developed. This paper presents the criteria used for selecting and evaluating potential park-and-ride sites. Other data such as demand analyses and on-bus surveys were used to determine the need and desirability of park-and-ride facilities. Another factor in site selection was the pending opening of the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
