The proposed regional Metro-rail system, currently under construction in the metropolitan Washington area, is planned through the City of Alexandria, with two stations located approximately one mile west of the downtown. This paper reports on the investigation of the real need for a transit distributor system, connecting the downtown with the two Metro-stations and an evaluation of the different available "genertic" types of transit systems in the context of the demand. The study shows that there is indeed a demand for such a distributor system that can be quantified using modeling techniques. /GMRL/
