Abstract

Intermodalism is a topic that is fostered by the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century and Florida's Growth Management Act, however, it can be used to further the hope of diminishing continued problems associated with America's love of the automobile and its superior convenience. Through its National Center for Transit Research, and under contract with the Florida Department of Transportation, the Center for Urban Transportation Research was tasked with reviewing selected small-scale transfer facilities, focusing on the interaction of transportation modes. The purpose of the review is to determine the minimum characteristics required for establishing intermodal transfer facilities and implementation of such facilities.
