PHASE 1: DEFINITION OF INTERCITY TRANSPORTATION COMPARISON FRAMEWORK. VOLUME 2: METHODOLOGY
Categories of cost and service measures that will appropriately define the characteristics of all intercity transportation systems were established. Previous methods of comparing transportation systems were reviewed. Specific comparison variables, applicable to all modes were defined, and the functional relationships by which these variables are interdependent were explored. A framework by which the set of variables may be employed for comparison of data from the individual systems was constructed.
