PLANNING INTERMODAL AND OPERATIONS FACILITIES FOR RURAL AND SMALL URBAN TRANSIT SYSTEMS: WORKSHOP MANUAL
This manual reviews a sequence of steps, methods and technical analyses which can be used by persons responsible for attempting to develop an intermodal passenger facility in rural and developing areas. In scope it provides a general overview of the total spectrum of technical analysis and work from feasibility study through design and construction in the context of the special conditions associated with intermodal facilities in rural and small urban areas. In this regard, it is intended for persons with an overall project development responsibility in all aspects of the project. It can help the transit system manager, generalist planner, architect, or engineer who has been charged with developing a new facility to understand some of the special conditions which they may face and what it takes to make such a facility feasible. While the focus is on small intermodal facilities, much of the process is also applicable to other transit facilities such as maintenance garages and administrative headquarters.
