Box B: Scheduling Situations That Are Not Considered to be Intermodal Connections
- The scheduling of arrivals and departures at the facility
does not permit connections both to and from
each of the modes involved.
- Connecting travelers need to wait greater than two
hours during the midnight-6 a.m. period in order to
make a connection between the two modes.
- A mode serving the facility less than daily does not
provide that service on all of the days that it operates
in that city or town, and as a result there are
days that the intermodal connection with the other
mode is not available (e.g., the intercity rail provider
serves the facility 7 days per week, but transit
service is provided only Monday-Friday even
though the transit agency operates service seven
days per week).
