As the traffic demand in metropolitan areas continues to increase, it has become clear that the big cities cannot build their way out of congestion. There is a need among the transportation agencies to better manage the existing infrastructure and optimize the utilization of available services – in big cities and smaller regions.

The planning and design for transportation systems are shifting their focus from private cars, which are, in many cases, single occupancy, toward high occupancy vehicles, typically public transit, as well as active transportation modes, such as walking and biking. 

Multimodal integration improves reliability, affordability, and – with trip planning – flexibility of multimodal trips. It increases ridership across modes and bridges the distance between transport stations and the final destination for riders. Physically, economically and socially disadvantaged people in particular need diverse mobility options: walking and cycling for local travel, public transit for longer trips, and automobiles (ridesharing, carsharing and taxi travel) when necessary. As a result, to be efficient and fair transportation must be multimodal.

In the Multimodal Case Study Index we share:

  • 8 cities and regions that have implemented strategies for creating multimodal integrated transportation systems.
  • How the the multimodal transportation system works within each network
  • The impacts multimodal transportation has had on the local community and the city/region.
