STATUS OF THE URBAN CORRIDOR DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM

This review of the accomplishments of the Urban Corriodor Demonstration Program (UCDP) by project type, also compares the similarities and differences of projects in each of the selected cities and documents a preliminary cost-impact evaluation of different improvement techniques. This report also summarizes what has been learned so far about the success or failure of various improvement concepts and discusses the remaining uncertainities. The UCDP projects were subdivided into 3 main groups: improved transit services and facilities, roadway and traffic control improvements, and other projects. Six of the 8 cities implemented some form of new bus service: express buses; expansion of preexisting express bs services; superimposition of new express services; and reorganization of routes and schedules. A variety of roadway and traffic control projects was developed including ones employing innovative preferential bus treatment concepts. A mixture of concepts were also imployed in projects which included enforcement of parking regulations on surface streets, progressive parking raes in off-street facilities etc.
