The report describes the cost and service implications of alternative scenarios for the deployment of an integrated regional transportation system in a hypothetical city. The impacts of various levels of user acceptance are investigated. For the selected study area, a limited expansion of integrated transit service to suburbs, and the improvement of off-peak suburban service through the use of flexible-route systems appears desirable. In view of the large areas and low suburban population densities characterizing the study region, full coverage of the entire suburbs appears to be economically feasible only at reduced service frequencies.
