Station and Support Facility Design Guidelines User Guide 1 1. Introduction This document supplements the Station and Support Facility discussion in the Regional Transitway Guidelines by providing additional information for topics discussed in the Guidelines. The User Guide is organized into seven sections: 1. Introduction 2. Station Design 3. Bus rapid transit (BRT), also called a busway or transitway, is a bus-based public transport system designed to improve capacity and reliability relative to a conventional bus system. Typically, a BRT system includes roadways that are dedicated to buses, and gives priority to buses at intersections where buses may interact with other traffic; alongside design features to reduce delays caused. The Racing Bicycle: Design, Function, Speed is a celebration of the design history and craftsmanship of the racing bicycle. This book covers every aspect of the art and design of the beloved cult object, whose rich history intertwines with that of design, engineering, and sports. Jan 2, Transportation Design Books Art Deco and British Car Design is a book about automotive styling, in particular the streamlined styling that defined what is now known as Airline cars. During the mids, the majority of British car manufacturers and coachbuilders experimented with streamlined styling. This fashion was the result of Art Deco.

  Transit and cities grow together. As cities work to become more compact, sustainable, and healthy, their work is paying dividends: in , Americans took billion trips on public transit, the highest since the dawn of the highway era. But most of these trips are on streets that were Brand: Island Press. The NACTO Transit Street Design Guide, a four-color book, places transit where it belongs, at the heart of street design. The guide shows how streets of every size can be redesigned to create great transit newest addition to the set of popular NACTO guides, the Transit Street Design Guide provides a much-needed link between transit. The calculation and design process of roadway geometry design are often cumbersome and time consuming. The University of Minnesota has an online roadway geometry design tool that was created to assist transportation students in this process. "Pedestrian- and Transit-Oriented Design provides practitioners with a road map for building truly world-class cities. Reid Ewing and Keith Bartholomew have brought together research from across the field of urban design to give readers proven tools for creating healthier, stronger communities that will thrive in the 21st century."Cited by:

  Four principles for the future of city streets. Cities can leverage design and technology to re-think our streets for pedestrians, bikes, and transit. As Peter Norton explains in his book, Author: Willa Ng.   The Transit Street Design Guide is a well-illustrated, detailed introduction to designing streets for high-quality transit, from local buses to BRT, from streetcars to light rail. Drawing on the expertise of a peer network and case studies from across North America, the guide provides a much-needed link between transit planning, transportation engineering, and street design.
