IMMEDIATE ACTION PROGRAM, URBAN CORRIDOR DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AND MARYLAND
The Washington Metropolitan Area Urban Corridor Demonstration Program sought to improve peak period travel conditions through major transportation improvements, the planning for which extended over a 12 to 18 month period. The opportunity existed to make transportation service improvements that would alleviate obvious deficiencies recognized while larger improvements were being developed. These constituted the Immediate Action Program. They included fringe parking, express bus service and bus shelters, with an associated public information effort. An employment demand survey to explore the potential counterflow bus service was also included. The implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the various projects of this program are documented. /FHWA/
