TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS: A MULTIAGENCY EFFORT

This cooperative effort of local, state, federal and regional governments which places primary emphasis on public transportation, covers such items as carpooling, public transit information, priority treatment for high occupancy vehicles, traffic operation, legal considerations and intersystem transfers, with primary emphasis on express transit service with interim park and ride facilities. The project, which is of a transportation system management nature, has incorporated all possible citizen participation, and consists of 2 phases. Phase I will provide transportation improvement within the corridor (on I-5) and is oriented to physical action and actual improvement. The project not only analyzed and proposed solutions but also addressed, emphasized and assisted in implementation. Through study and field review of the major causes of congestion, low-cost solutions to reduce the impact of the existing problems were determined and identified. The results are outlined of an origin/destination study, and the details are briefly discussed of the area's transit service. The analysis of the areas problems resulted in the development of a number of low-cost improvement recommendations in the existing transportation system. These include an express bus service, interim park and ride facilities, and a program that would provide intersystem transfers.
