An Approach for Evaluating the Suitability of Transportation Design Concepts to Meet the Needs of a Major Activity Center 690037
A new approach is persented for analyzing the interrelationships among transportation technology, place, and people in major urban activity centers. Such a comprehensive approach is necessary in order for transportation system designers to understand the importance of developing transportation concepts with design characteristics that are responsive to urban travel needs and compatible with existing or proposed land-use environments. In addition, examples of current transportation system deficiencies in downtown areas are presented to stimulate an awareness among system designers of the role of transportation in achieving a viable downtown area and the types of system characteristics that must be implemented to achieve this viability.
