THE IMPACT OF RAPID TRANSIT ON THE METROCENTER

THE STUDY CONTAINS TWO PARTS. THE FIRST ANALYZES THE ROUTE SEGMENT OF THE FIRST PHASE RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM WHICH PASSES THROUGH THE CENTER OF BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, WITH SPECIAL ATTENTION DIRECTED TOWARD PEDESTRIAN MOVEMENTS TO THE STATIONS, REDEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES OF THE LAND ADJACENT TO THE STATIONS, AND THE MARKET STATION AS IT RELATES TO A POSSIBLE EAST-WEST LINE. THE SECOND REVIEWS THE EXPERIENCES OF OTHER CITIES CURRENTLY CONCERNED WITH NEW OR EXPANDING EXISTING RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS. SPECIFIC ATTENTION IS PAID TO THE LAND USE RELATIONSHIPS IN TRANSIT STATION AREAS, AND LEGISLATIVE ATTEMPTS TO CONTROL AND INDUCE STATION AREA DEVELOPMENT. EXAMPLES OF LEGISLATIVE TOOLS ARE INCLUDED. /NTIS/
