MASS TRANSIT PROGRAM FOR THE SAINT LOUIS METROPOLITAN AREA
The Mass Transit Program is Phase I of the Alternatives Analysis program for the St. Louis metropolitan area. The major activities included surveys of community leaders, transit dependents and areawide survey (a telephone random sample). An analysis of transit needs of the region with special emphasis on the transit dependent was performed. Physical opportunities for transit improvements were identified. Three alternative regional systems were prepared and analyzed for patronage, costs, benefits and impact. Four refined (composite) systems were prepared and analyzed. Initially, light rail transit was considered worthy of Phase II alternatives analysis, but the final decision was to proceed with an all-bus on local streets system.
