TRANSFORMING EXISTING FACILITIES INTO MORE EFFECTIVE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (INTEGRATION OF DEMAND REDUCTION, OPERATIONAL/SERVICE CHANGES AND CAPITAL INVESTMENTS)
The paper reviews experience with several types of demand-reducing, operational/service and capital programs, generally noting how they relate to guidelines, discussed in the paper, for getting additional use from existing highway systems. The various programs encompass such concepts as staggered hours/flexible hours, parking charge differentials; contra-flow bus lanes, same-direction bus lanes, one-way tolls, driver information systems, transit information systems, modal interconnectivity; examples of introducing high quality bus rapid transit service into existing corridors under differing right-of-way and institutional constraints.
