Multilane Passenger Conveyors
It is concluded that multilane passenger conveyors have only one serious disadvantage that has been definitely established, i.e., the considerable width required by the several lanes which...

Ventilated Approach Regions for Railway Tunnels
A possible method of reducing the magnitudes of the pressure transients generated when railway trains enter tunnels at high speeds is described. Some such method will be required in the...

Washington Metro Access Facilities
The 98 mi (158 km) Metro system will have 82 stations. There will be an off-street bus terminal at 54 of the stations with an average of six modified saw-tooth off-street bus bays at each...

Transportation Facilities Workshop
Passenger, Freight and Parking
Proceedings of the Transportation Facilities Workshop, held at Carnegie-Mellon University, New York, New York, May 22-24, 1974. Sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers Urban...

Air Passenger Terminal Planning And Design

Passenger Evaluation of D/FW Airport

Escalators in Rapid Transit Stations
As it becomes more apparent that comfort and convenience must be offered to the potential passenger to encourage him to change his travel mode, newer systems intend to install many more...

Analytical Approach to Railway Signal Block Design
Originally intended for rapid transit systems, it is also applicable to any rail system where high-speed, short-headway characteristics are required to maintain a smooth and efficient...

Energy-Intensiveness of Transportation
Historical, present, and possible future patterns of energy consumption in the transportation sector are examined for intercity freight and passenger traffic and for urban passenger traffic....

Public Participation in Urban Transit Service
The trend in transit operations is toward public ownership and operation of services. The only questions are: when, how, and how much. The trend in public operations is to establish regional...

Analysis of Passenger Delays at Airport Terminals
Although supportive numerical data have not been collected, specific consideration has been given to the operation of Toronto International Airport to show the procedure of analysis in...

Analysis of Satellite Air Terminal System
A systems approach is used to analyze the satellite air terminal concept for large metropolitan areas. A mathematical model formulates the problem as a fixed charge selection-allocation...

Passenger Design Standards for Bay Area Rapid Transit Stations

Environmental Factors in Passenger Terminal Design
A passenger terminal may be visualized as a local subsystem within a larger regional system that exists to support the needs of society. The local terminal subsystem has external effects...

Noise and Vibration Control in New Rapid Transit
Excessive vibration and noise may have adverse effects on the acceptance by the community of new transit networks and can affect the comfort and ridership of passengers who use the vehicles....

Curbside Service Subways
Currently proposed on-call (or demand actuated, or Personal Rapid Transit) systems cannot safely provide the desired line capacities. Scheduled trains lack the desired privacy, direct...

Impact of Rail Transit on Bus Operations
Predictable transit passenger selection of the most desirable travel route dictates extensive diversion of riders from existing bus operations to new rail systems. Planning of coordinated...

Illinois Central Suburban Automated Revenue Collection System
It was the promise of reducing costs and the production of higher collections, that convinced the management of the Illinois Central Railroad late in 1964 to let a contract for the development,...

Improving Airport Gate Usage with Critical Path
The supply of adequate gate space, particularly during peak hours, has become a concern at many airports. The turnaround operation of passenger aircraft was examined with the aim of finding...

Airfield Pavement Systems
The concepts on which are based the most popular of the current pavement design procedures were introduced nearly 30 years ago. At that time, structural support problems had a dominant...
