EFFICIENCY, EQUITY, AND PRICING OF MASS TRANSIT SYSTEMS

THIS ARTICLE DISCUSSES THE TRADE-OFF FACING PROPOSED MASS TRANSIT SYSTEMS IN MOST LARGE U. S. STATISTICAL METROPOLITAN AREAS, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO THE ATLANTA, GEORGIA STANDARD METROPOLITAN STATISTICAL AREAS. LONGER DISTANCES BETWEEN STOPS, LONGER LINES, AND A SMALLER PERCENTAGE OF STOPS WITHIN THE CENTRAL CITY INDICATE A CHANGE IN MASS TRANSIT PLANNERS' GOALS. THE ECONOMIC DECISIONS WHICH WILL HAVE TO BE MADE IN DETERMINING HOW TO FINANCE THE NEW SYSTEM ARE ALSO EXAMINED. /AUTHOR/
