AUTO RESTRICTED ZONES--BACKGROUND AND FEASIBILITY

This report was prepared as part of the Auto Restricted Zone/Multi-User Vehicle Systems Study of the Service and Methods Demonstration Program of the Urban Mass Transportation Administration. The purpose of the study is to (1) investigate existing experience with auto restricted zones and multi-user vehicle systems, (2) evaluate their feasibility as concepts applicable to urban transportation systems, (3) identify and evaluate potential sites for demonstration, and (4) design demonstration programs. This volume examines the concept of auto restriction, investigates its application in both Europe and the U.S. Auto restricted zones were found to be feasible for application to U.S. cities, and a number of key factors were identified in their successful implementation. /UMTA/
