To provide improved alternatives to suburban solo commuting, a technologically intensive door-to-door mobility service was designed for suburban commutes, with special emphasis on addressing attitudinal and psychological barriers. A literature review, expert opinion, and a geographic information system journey-to-work analysis influenced the initial conceptualization. Concepts were then iteratively refined through interview research. The final system concept was validated with stated preference…

Design of Personal Rapid Transit Circulator for Major Activity Center

The design of a comprehensive mobility system for a suburban San Francisco, California, East Bay Area office park exposes a number of new transit circulator implementation challenges, including problems with generating too much PRT circulator ridership and the need for folding grocery carts when the car is left at home.

THE SITUATIONAL APPROACH - AN ALTERNATIVE MODEL CONCEPT : THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS AND PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS

The situational approach is a concept of this sort that has also proven its ability to be practically applied in the various concrete situations where it was used; were this model approach to be more widely applied, one could gain important insights as to how it might be further improved.
