This research presents a series of accessibility methodologies developed for bus-highway system interactions.
Accessibility is defined as the collective number of jobs that can be reached by a particular mode of
transportation within a given travel time period. The effects of managed lanes (ML), park-and-ride (PNR), and
travel costs on walk-up transit accessibility are measured for the Minneapolis–Saint Paul (Twin Cities) region. Each
methodology is introduced, supported by a literature review, and described in detail before
scenario results are presented. The final analysis uses the ML and PNR methodologies to establish a
comprehensive transit accessibility profile for the Twin Cities, which accounts for the dual impact of
auxiliary transportation facilities.
