Terminal Planning For Future Highwaysby
Committee on Terminals, Highway Division, ASCE
Serial Information: Journal of the Highway Division, 1966, Vol. 92, Issue 2, Pg. 61-74
Document Type: Journal Paper
The Committee on Terminals, realizing that information concerning terminals on which future planning of highways should be based is sparse surveys current (1966) projects, and outlines major trends. The key points emphasized include providing parking directly in major commercial and residential buildings, and improved design of parking space and other terminal requirements in real estate complexes. The development of transportation centers, with appropriate ancillary facilities, at modal interchange points is described. Although the report stresses automobile terminal requirements, the Committee believes that no one vehicle can adequately serve all urban travel needs. Bus service and rail rapid transit systems must complement the automobile. Projects described include Century City in West Los Angeles, Macy's-Queens Department Store, Chicago's municipal parking program, and New York's Midtown Bus Terminal.
