A Potential Arlington
Public Transit System
Saty Satyamurti, Ph.D.
Arlington, with an estimated population of nearly 400,000, is the largest American city without any form of public transportation. Public support for measures to fund and implement bus services could be described as dismal, at best: Bond issues have been defeated and potential routes have been largely dismissed as not well thought out. Can a successful bus service for the citizens of Arlington ever be developed?
In this presentation, Dr. Satyamurti describes "Arlington City Transport" - his plan for a bus transit system for Arlington, including issues such as population forecasts, bus terminals, hubs, routes, fares, type of buses, bus stops, bus shelters, ticketing operations, safety and security.
Saty Satyamurti earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the University of Madras and a master's degree from the University of Toronto. He has experience in infrastructure construction, steel mills, highways, bridges, refineries, offshore production facilities and airports gained while working for industry giants Stone & Webster, Fluor, and M. W. Kellogg. His last assignment before retiring in 2000 was with the Parsons Corporation, working on the expansion of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Dr. Satyamurti earned a doctoral degree in civil engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2007 at the age of 72.
