A Critique Of The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission 1985 Regional Transportation Plan, David E. Boyce, Vukan R. Vuchic

Departmental Papers (ESE)

The 1985 Regional Transportation Plan of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (Plan Report No. 5) is one of the most detailed and informative reports published to date by a transportation planning agency. The Report reflects several advances in urban transportation planning procedures made by DVRPC. Nevertheless, the Report does contain a number of very serious deficiencies.

In an attempt to make a constructive contribution to transportation planning in the Delaware Valley Region, the authors of this Critique analyze these deficiencies and propose general and specific improvements for the Transportation Plan.

Propagation Of Schedule Disturbances In Line-Haul Passenger Transportation, Vukan R. Vuchic Jan 1969

Propagation Of Schedule Disturbances In Line-Haul Passenger Transportation, Vukan R. Vuchic

Departmental Papers (ESE)

Schedule disturbances in public transport operations have a tendency to intensify along the line and propagate to successive vehicles due to the uneven accumulation of passengers. This phenomenon, affecting efficiency and reliability of service, occurs frequently with surface services due to street con­gestion, as well as with rapid transit when It approaches capacity volumes. In recent years, considerable attention has been given to this problem.

Newell and Potts [1] (*), using a deterministic model, derived an expression for the behavior of delays both along the line and of subsequent vehicles at individual stations due to passenger accumulation. They gave a ...


The Role Of Public Transportation In Hamburg, Germany, Vukan R. Vuchic Jan 1964

The Role Of Public Transportation In Hamburg, Germany, Vukan R. Vuchic

Departmental Papers (ESE)

Hamburg is making serious efforts to solve the transporta­tion problem, common to most European cities-how to provide facilities to meet the rapidly increasing requirements of modem transportation and, at the same time, preserve the city's values by maintaining historic and other buildings, structures, and, particularly in the central area, its character. Being a large and relatively rich city with progressive ideas, Hamburg has accom­plished some remarkable achievements in this field. The purpose of this article is to delineate some of those achievements, particularly in public transportation.
