THE IMPACT OF THE ENERGY CRISIS ON AMERICAN CITIES BASED ON DISPERSION OF EMPLOYMENT, UTILIZATION OF TRANSIT, AND CAR POOLING

The impact of the energy crisis on transportation within selected American cities is analyzed. Using Journey to Work data from the 1970 U.S. Census of Population, changes are estimated in car pooling and in the use of alternative transportation modes for commutation travel. Suggestions are provided for the analysis of specific cities, and transportation planning in the Baltimore, Maryland, area is reviewed in some depth. Conclusions are drawn that, on average, limited energy shortfalls (of approximately 10 percent) should have no severe adverse impact on commutation activity. /Author Abstract/
