A Procedural Method for Express Bus-Fringe Parking Transit Planning

Report No: 77-R23

Published in 1976

About the report:

The report illustrates a procedural method for planning express bus-fringe parking transit services - a method built upon the findings from previous research, including disaggregate travel choice models and planning guidelines. The methodology addresses the tasks of site selection, demand analysis, and site evaluation. The appropriateness of this subarea planning process is demonstrated in an application to Southside Richmond. The case study is documented so that transportation planners can use it as a guide for employing the procedure.
