These recommendations for analysis and design of transit guideways, reported by Committee 3.58, form a procedure for the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete guideway structures for public transit use. The document is specifically prepared to provide design guidance for transit structures. For items not covered here, the reader is referred to appropriate bridge and railroad design codes.
