OPERATING MULTI-MODAL URBAN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS
The project examines the state-of-the-art in multi-modal urban transportation system operations, proposes and assesses eight model institutional arrangements for more efficient and effective urban transportation operations, assesses the influence of Federal policies in this area, and proposes possible changes to enhance coordination of urban transportation services. The report concludes that some of the more important elements determining the success of efforts to coordinate urban transportation operations are institutional structure, responsibility for coordination, incentives operating on each agency and individual, patterns of personal relationships, and specific mechanisms for coordination. Potential Federal actions and incentives for promoting coordinated urban transportation operations are proposed.
