NIAGARA FRONTIER MASS TRANSIT STUDY
The report is presented in three parts. The first part is a transit economics report which concerns itself with inventory and analysis of present transit service and facilities in the study region. The second part is a civil engineering report which details the study processes leading to the recommendation of an exclusive right-of-way transit facility for the Buffalo-Amherst corridor. The third part is a traffic engineering report which deals with patronage and revenue estimates, and offers judgments concerning the economic feasibility of the combined transit facilities recommended in the preceding two parts. The three elements of the Niagara Frontier Mass Transit Study were conducted concurrently, with cooperation and interaction on the part of three prime consultants.
