One in a series of studies prepared for the Northeast Corridor Transportation Project, this work concentrates principally on the problems of (1) identifying hierarchical structures in transportation analysis, (2) measuring attributes that characterize the relationship between transportation and its impact on users, operators and society, and (3) developing specific techniques for combining attribute measures. Measures are designed to define the interface between features of the transportation demanded and the techbological alternatives proposed to supply this service. In effect, a choice among alternative system changes can be made by incorporating data into a cost-benefit or system analytic framework for a specified budget increment, and then testing various mode mixes. Examples illustrate the proposed techniques.
