Friday, October 26, 2012 - More than half of all U.S. transportation terminals offer intermodal passenger connectivity among at least two scheduled passenger transportation modes, according to a new passenger connectivity database released today by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). The Intermodal Passenger Connectivity Database (IPCD) shows that 68 percent of terminals in urbanized areas offer intermodal connections, but only 7 percent of terminals in rural areas offer the same service. Rail stations are the most likely terminals to offer connections, while airports are the least likely terminals to do so. See Intermodal Connectivity Facts for more summary information. The complete IPCD database  contains details about connections at more than 7,000 passenger terminals, including the type of connecting facility, the geographic location of the connection, and the types of connecting modes. Release of the IPCD completes a five-year BTS effort to collect data on intermodal connections in the passenger transportation system.
