ORLANDO CHANGES DIRECTION: FROM BELTWAY TO BUSWAY

This paper reports on the long-range phase of an overall urban area transportation study in a three-county area centered on Orlando, Florida. The paper focuses on a major shift in perspective regarding solutions to future travel demand problems. Discussed are five transportation system alternatives with various combinations of automobile-oriented and transit-oriented sytems and two major aspects of the study methodology: (a) the formulation of a land use sketch plan designed to be more compatible with a future transit system and (b) the development of a disutility modal-split model based on transit attitudes. Transportation system alternatives are defined and the evaluation and public involvement processes that led to the selection of a preferred alternative plan are described. The implementation of the plan through a short-range transition period is described, and eight major conclusions and observations are given. /Author/
