ASSESSING IMPACT OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION

RESEARCH STUDIES ON THE IMPACT OF THE PHILADELPHIA- LINDENWOLD RAPID TRANSIT LINE, NOW IN PROGRESS, ARE DESCRIBED. PRINCIPLES AND OBJECTIVES OF THESE IMPACT STUDIES ARE ANALYZED AS A GUIDE TO FUTURE STUDIES. THE ROLE OF THIS RESEARCH AS A PROTOTYPE STUDY FOR LARGER IMPACT STUDIES IS EXAMINED TOGETHER WITH QUESTIONS OF MODEL BUILDING, STATISTICAL HYPOTHESIS TESTING AND DATA AVAILABILITY. FOLLOWING A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE HIGH-SPEED LINE ITSELF, TWO AREAS OF RESEARCH ARE DESCRIBED AS ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE PRINCIPLES AND OBJECTIVES OF IMPACT STUDY RESEARCH DESIGN. THE FIRST CONCERNS A SIMPLE MODEL OF TRANSIT STATION CHOICE AND ITS EMPIRICAL TESTING. THE SECOND DESCRIBES SEVERAL STUDIES OF LAND VALUE AND LAND USE IMPACT. THE PAPER CONCLUDES WITH A REVIEW OF THE RESEARCH DESIGNS IN TERMS OF THE PRINCIPLES OF SUCH IMPACT STUDIES.
