After ten years of serious consideration of some type of steelwheel-steelrail public transit improvements, the conclusion was reached that for the forseeable future buses operating on existing streets and highways with certain modifications are the most cost-effective means to meet this region's transit needs. Attention is now focused on financing existing transit service and the improvement proposals made in this report. This volume, Volume II, provides a description of the methodology utilized in the analysis, and it is intended to provide guidelines for other urban areas. This volume consists of procedures employed in the transit dependent survey, in transit analysis of existing data sources, and in the key person community survey. In addition, Volume II includes four appendixes. The first two appendixes present the survey instruments used in both the transit-dependent and the key person community surveys. Appendix C details the survey manual used to train interviewers for the transit-dependent survey, and Appendix D describes the community participation program.
