SELECTION OF URBAN TRANSIT SYSTEMS IN CITIES WITH LESS THAN 500,000 POPULATION

In this paper, a procedure is described for the evaluation and choice of urban transit systems in cities with less than 500,000 population. Three major objectives, which satisfy the desires of three groups (the users, the operator, and the community) are considered in the analysis. The purpose of the study is to search for and identify a proposal which provides maximum effectiveness for the three groups. Since there is usually a definite budget assigned to the urban transit system, the capital costs of the chosen proposal should also fall within the limits of the budget. (A) /TRRL/
