ENERGY, URBAN FORM AND TRANSPORTATION POLICY

A frequently suggested strategy for alleviating transportation energy shortage is to reduce travel demands by altering the patterns of land uses in cities. This paper examines this strategy by exploring the interface between urban structure, transportation energy consumption, and transportation policy. The interrelationships between travel demand and urban form are first examined, and research attempts to clarify and model these relationships are reviewed. The role of transportation as a land use development control is discussed, and the use of "transportation performance standards" is proposed as a method for integrating transportation energy considerations into land development controls and decisions. /Author Abstract/
