I-95/NW 7TH AVENUE BUS/CAR POOL SYSTEMS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT REPORT I-5. EFFECT OF THE PARK'N'RIDE FACILITY ON USAGE OF THE NW 7TH AVENUE EXPRESS BUS SYSTEM

This report presents a description of the Golden Glades Park'n'Ride Facility and an assessment of the impact of the Facility on usage of the I-95/NW 7th Avenue Express Bus/Car Pool Systems Demonstration Project during Phase I. The Golden Glades Facility is an intermodal transfer facility which provides parking for persons transferring from the auto mode to the express bus or car pool mode. The Facility serves as a staging area for Orange Streaker buses and car pools with provisions for kiss'n'ride and local bus transfers, as well as the park'n'ride transfers. Covering 8.1 acres and providing 967 parking spaces, the Facility is located at the southern end of the Project market area with access to the Project corridor via NW 7th Avenue. This report represents an analysis of data from daily MTA starter counts, input/output studies, air photo studies, system user and intermodal transfer studies, which were used to determine the type of use, growth, and distribution of vehicles as they arrived and left the Facility.
