|Abstract: ||The UK offers 40 years of experience with a model of car-bus intermodality that has
become a popular policy option. This concept, with interchange sites located close to
their host cities and served by dedicated buses, has changed very little despite
concerns that it may have a detrimental effect on car use. The aim of this paper is to
consider the impact of current interchange schemes and propose a number of
alternative concepts for car-bus interchange, primarily by adjusting interchange site
location and bus operation. The impacts of such concepts on car use are then
modelled. The results suggest that while current intermodality generally increases car
use, considerable relative benefits can be derived from the alternatives.|
