BOSTON AUTO RESTRICTED ZONE DEMONSTRATION EVALUATION PLAN

The Boston Auto Restricted Zone Demonstration Project, to be implemented in September 1978, represents an attempt to rationalize auto, transit and pedestrian circulation patterns in the central business district of a major U.S. city. The demonstration includes such elements as the restriction of autos from certain streets, major re-routing of traffic, improved bus service into the area, improved sidewalk facilities, additional goods movement and loading areas, and a relocation of taxi stands. The demonstration site is located in the Boston central business district, in which roughly 120,000 people are employed and in which roughly 25% of the city's retail trade is conducted. There are a number of objectives associated with the Boston ARZ project, which includes increased retail sales, increased transit ridership, increased transit productivity, increased pedestrian activity, and improved environmental quality.
