This report, the second in a two-year series, provides an in-depth look at selected multimodal/intermodal transportation planning methods, funding programs, and projects. The first report, Multimodal /Intermodal Transportation in the United States, Western Europe, and Latin America, identified a wide range of multimodal/intermodal "best practices" by investigating supranational, national, state, and local government transport activities on three continents. Multimodal practices refer to a process of collectively addressing all modes of transportation, whereas intermodal practices refer to a process of addressing the linkages, interactions, and movements among modes of transportation. The first report, however, did not go into detail on any individual plan, funding program, or project.
This second report is intended to provide a more detailed appraisal of a spectrum of multimodal/intermodal practices. It contains seven case studies of "Best Practical in Multimodal/Intermodal Planning Methods," six case studies of "Selected Multimodal/Intermodal Funding Programs," and five case studies "Selected Multimodal/Intermodal funding Programs." Several appendixes at the end of the report contain relevant information on authorizing legislation, program application forms, funding eligibility criteria, cooperative agreements, and the like.
