The report ends with a discussion of the benefits of sprawl and ways to reduce the negative effects

Traveler response to transportation system changes by John E Evans( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This chapter highlights the travel demand findings for vanpooling and buspooling. The chapter examines the effects of travel times, pricing, and a number of related tangibles and intangibles on the decision to vanpool in particular; quantifies vanpooling and buspooling as best can be done; looks at vanpooling trends; examines rider survey information; identifies indicators of market potential; and explores cost implications, among other subjects. Vanpools generally consist of 5 to 15 people, including a volunteer driver-member, that elect to commute together in a van. Vanpooling is distinguished from carpooling by not only size, but also the greater degree of management and institutional involvement required. Meanwhile, buspool programs offer a neighborhood-based demand responsive service similar to vanpooling, but with professional or, at least, appropriately licensed bus drivers and the use of buses, mini-buses, or large vans. The information presented in Chapter 5 on vanpools and buspools covers both traveler response and implications for program success. This chapter will be of interest to transit and transportation planning practitioners; educators and researchers; and professionals across a broad spectrum of transportation and planning agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, and local, state, and federal government agencies
Strategies to attract auto users to public transportation by Kenneth J Dueker( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eight strategies affecting the price and availability of parking and transit service levels were examined, alone and in combination, to assess their effects on travel mode choice, particularly transit. The study concludes that no single strategy is both effective and politically feasible enough to warrant implementation throughout a metropolitan area. Rather, the researchers recommend that policy-makers implement combinations of parking strategies, in response to the policy and transportation objectives of specific geographical areas. The final chapter of the report, an implementation guide, provides forms, examples, and other information to assist agencies in selecting combinations of parking strategies that will be appropriate for local needs

Transit markets of the future : the challenge of change by Sandra Rosenbloom( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the effects of current trends (e.g., demographic, economic, social, land use, and transport policy) and trends expected over the next 15 years on current and future transit markets. Although many of these trends are not favorable to public transit, a number are identified that provide opportunities for maintaining current transit markets and creating new, expanded, or different transit markets. The report identifies 40 transit service concepts that appear to offer the most effective means of adjusting to these societal trends
Hybrid-electric transit buses : status, issues, and benefits by Northeast Advanced Vehicle Consortium( Book )
