Freeways with High Occupancy Vehicle Treatments
High Occupancy Vehicles (HOV) lanes are becoming common in urban freeway environment as an approach to reducing congestion and travel times.
Guidelines for the planning and designs of HOV facilities are given in AASHTO’s Guide for the Design of High Occupancy Vehicle Facilities and in the HOV Systems Manual, National Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 414, Transportation Research Board, National Research Council, Washington, D.C., 1998.Anchor: #i1085724
Light Rail Transit
Light Rail Transit systems are being considered in some urban environments as an approach to reducing congestion and travel times.
Guidelines for the incorporation of light rail transit systems in the transportation network are given in the Federal Transit Administration publication by Korve, Farran, Mansel, Levinson, Chira-Chavala and Ragland, TCRP Report 17, Integration of Light Rail Transit into City Streets, Transportation Research Board, National Academy Press, Washington, D.C., 1996.
