Abstract: The 35 papers presented at the March, 1982 Specialty Conference on Design, Construction and Rehabilitation of Public Transit Facilities are published here. Some of the papers focus on the design issue, while others address innovations in bus usage, transit system management, and high-occupancy vehicle applications. However, rehabilitation and modernization are key issues and are given close examination. Nearly every facet of passenger and maintenance facilities is reviewed including maintenance and storage facilities for rail transit systems, bus garages, and passenger interface facilities. Downtown bus priority treatment is also covered. Cost considerations are addressed, including design and construction techniques to lower costs. Some papers discuss views on operations and maintenance costs and the life cycle cost philosophy. A major portion of these discussions are related to energy factors. Several case studies are presented on bus priority traffic signal control, installation and rehabilitation of light rail systems, and conversion of an existing freight line for carrying transit passengers.
