Light Rail Transit Surface Operations: Technical Appendix, Trip Reports, E S. Diamant, G. Fox, W. H. Korve, R. T. Sauve, Vukan R. Vuchic

Departmental Papers (ESE)

This appendix to the report, Light Rail Transit: Surface Operations, contains unedited trip reports prepared in 1977 covering visits in 1976 to cities in Sweden, Holland, Switzerland and west Germany by Dr. E. s. Diamant; to Holland, Belgium, Italy, Yugoslavia and West Germany by Dr. v. R. Vuchic; and to cities in North America. by Messieurs H. Carve, R. Sauve and G. Fox, to carry out investigations and gain understanding of the fundamental design and operation practices of light rail transportation systems. These trip reports are published at this time to supplement the report Light Rail Transit: Surface Operations.

Current interest in Light Rail Transit (LRT) is anchored in its functional and economic capabilities which derive from operations at surface street level. European cities have shown that light rail can be successfully co-located with growing automobile traffic. There are no unique forms and approaches to LRT surface operations. European experts have come up with a range of design concepts of varying cost and differing impacts on adjoining vehicular and pedestrian movements. This report reviews and illustrates the applications of many of the more successfully used design and operational concepts. Topics include design concepts using man-made or vegetation barriers to ...

Departmental Papers (ESE)

This study analyzes various methods of providing transit services in low-density areas. These areas can be classified into two major categories. First, suburban areas of medium and large cities; and second, entire medium and small cities which have low population densities. One of these types of areas is found in most cities.

The focus of this study is the type of transit network and operation in which special transit centers are organized at which vehicles from several different lines converge at the same time, enabling passengers to transfer between any two lines, and then depart in their respective directions. This ...
