AN EMPIRICAL STUDY OF PARK-AND-RIDE MASS TRANSIT SYSTEMS IN THE U.S.

With increased congestion and pollution in urban streets, as well as the challenge to more effectively use scarce land resources in center city areas, transportation planners need to examine methods of converting commuters to less energy intensive modes. Through emphasizing the key level-of-service variables, i.e. implementing exclusive bus lanes wherever possible, and scheduling park-and-ride services to insure flexibility for commuting patrons, it is hoped that transit policy planners can make mass transit in general, and park-and-ride programs in particular, successful systems in reducing the automobile-dependence of urban areas. /GMRL/
