CRITERIA USED BY TRANSIT OPERATORS AND PLANNING AGENCIES IN SELECTED CITIES TO EXTEND SERVICE TO NEWLY DEVELOPING AREAS
Public planning agencies and transit operators responded to a questionnaire designed to indicate general opinions and attitudes towards the extension of transit service to newly developing areas within their communities. Economic feasibility seems to be the major determinant. There was little indication, in the responses from the planning agencies, of any well-conceived and positive coordination of land development policies and transit system planning policies in order to achieve mutually complementary results. While there were some indications that trial service was used by the transit operators as a means of measuring demand, policies were not clearly defined.
