AUTOMATED GUIDEWAY TRANSIT WORKSHOP ON PERFORMANCE MEASURES, EVALUATION TECHNIQUES, AND GOALS HELD IN WASHINGTON, D.C. ON AUGUST 25, 1976

The Office of Technology Development and Deployment of the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) is sponsoring projects that require the development of performance measures that will be used to evaluate the cost effectiveness of current and planned Automated Guideway Transit (AGT) systems. The purpose of this workshop was to identify performance parameters and develop measurement and computational techniques. The workshop centered around two specific objectives: (1) to review the status of parameter definitions; and (2) to review the techniques used for the measurement and evaluation of AGT system performance and establish significant trade-off items for further study. This workshop discussed the meaning, specification, and measurement of performance in AGT systems. The workshop was organized according to the following areas: Socio-Economic Studies Project - AGT Assessments; Preliminary Performance Measures for AGT Urban Deployability; Preliminary Performance Measures for the Systems Operations Studies; Advanced Mass Transit Simulator; and Trade-Off Studies for AGRT. This document contains the workshop presentation papers, discussion results, and list of attendees.
