EXPENSE PLANE EVALUATION METHOD

In seeking the best future transport system for a metropolis, various plans are tested by procedures that yield three essentials about the performance of a plan: its expense in dollars actually spent, the total hours devoted to travel, and the number of travel-associated fatalities. Given specific estimates on these items, the problem is how to evaluate them to select the best plan. The method proposed here compares the total transport expense of various plans with the expense of doing nothing (the so-called "null plan") at all realistic equivalents of time and casualties. It may be called the Expense Plane Evaluation method. /GMRL/
