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).
