Box A: Proximity Criteria for an Intermodal Connection

A connection exists between modes if

  • They serve the same terminal building, or
  • Serve facilities that are within the same block, or
  • Serve facilities in an adjacent block, but within a
    one block radius, as long as the traveler does not
    have to cross a major thoroughfare at an unprotected
    intersection, or cross some other physical
    barrier, or
  • Are located in buildings that are more than one
    block apart but are connected by either an enclosed
    structure or a conveyance operated by either the
    facility or one of the carriers involved for the sole
    purpose of facilitating a connection between modes
    in the two buildings.
