UNIVERSITY AREA TRANSIT STUDY. A PRELIMINARY DESIGN

Situations and events of the past ten years in the University Area of the West Bank, East Bank and St. Paul Campuses of the University of Minnesota, generated discussions of the need for a transit circulation and distribution system and the need to define the relationship between the circulation system and the regional transit system. The University Area Study was conducted in two parts: Part (1) System selection -- The work completed (goals, objectives, culture and performance requirements, identification of potential...users, transit system alternatives, and summary report) resulted in the definition of a conceptual transit system for the University Area. Part (2) Preliminary design -- This work refines the conceptual transit system, defines system performance specifications, estimates capital and operating costs, and includes an implementation schedule.
