Intermodal transportation is an increasingly important aspect of Florida’s transportation system, one with the potential to boost the State’s economic development and sustain its environment. As such, intermodalism—the concept behind intermodal transportation—is increasingly drawing attention and consideration from agencies and policy-makers at all levels of government. Intermodalism and intermodal transportation can be ambiguous terms. Clarifying their meaning, their historical application and development, and indeed the government’s role in transportation planning aids the planning of an integrated, intermodal transportation system.
