This report documents the study of the impact of BART's General Obligation bond financing on the cost of public borrowing in the San Francisco Bay Area and the study of the magnitude of the debt on the financing of other public projects. The study comprises a statistical search to see if borrowing cost changes appear related to the level of BART debt, and a series of interviews and surveys among leaders in the municipal bond industry to see what, if any, impact they perceived in the 1962-1972 period. Methodology, results and findings are reported. (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
