ON THE ALLOCATION OF LAND TO URBAN TRANSPORTATION
Land is one of the more important inputs in urban transportation. The purposes of this paper are: (a) to present a theoretical model of a city that will explain the amount of land devoted to transportation in various parts of a city, and in cities of different sizes; (b) to try and examine whether the available data on the amount of land used for transportation in various cities, and in various parts of the same city conform to what is expected according to the model. The model that is presented is a fixed coefficients model. The main feature of the model is that it allows explicitly for the use of land in transportation.
