REVIEW OF GUIDEWAY DESIGN CRITERIA IN EXISTING TRANSIT SYSTEM CODES

This paper is considered a necessary first step in preparing a new transit code. Basic design philosophies and criteria adopted by some of the light rail and heavy rail transit authorities in North America are reviewed and compared. The more familiar highway and railway transportation authorities are included for direct comparison. Relevant design criteria of the British Standards Institute are also included as a reference to European systems.
