Taxi-Transit Integration in the Atlanta Region

In July 2000, Trans/AQ, Inc. began an assessment of taxi-transit integration in the Atlanta Metropolitan Region under contract with the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority.  The work included assessments of the current state of the taxi industry, the regulatory structure under which the Atlanta taxi fleet operates, and the current planning linkages between the taxi and transit industry.  The study also reviewed the taxi-transit infrastructure, focusing on the integration of facilities and policies designed to encourage and facilitate mode transfers.  The overall assessment included six elements:

Five summary reports (the first two elements above appear in a single report) and all relevant documentation were scanned and converted to Adobe Acrobat format and provided below.  All materials associated with the project can be found on this CD-ROM.
