URBAN MASS TRANSPORTATION ADMINISTRATION (U.M.T.A.) TRANSPORTATION PLANNING SYSTEM -- NETWORK DEVELOPMENT MANUAL

The UMTA Transportation Planning System (UTPS) is a set of computer programs for use in planning multi-modal transportation systems. The basic UTPS software is aimed at the mid-level of analysis -- ie. specific routes and corridors as have been used for typical areawide transportation planning studies. One critical elements of these analyses is the ability to accurately represent existing and planned transportation systems. This manual provides an overview of the UTPS network analysis computer programs which are designed to simulate such urban transportation systems. Specific topics covered in this report include: network functions and components, the actual transit planning programs, preparation of network data and maps, problem situations and solutions, and a discussion of specialized networks. Parameters for the various programs are covered in the appendices. (Author)
