The report presents information on the socioeconomic characteristics of BART, bus and automobile travelers, the purposes and other characteristics of their trips, and the shares of areawide travel carried by the modes. BART's ridership is heavily oriented towards peak-period journeys to and form workplaces in central San Francisco and Oakland. Two-thirds of all BART trips are between home and work. The 588,000 BART trips made Monday through Friday for all purposes in may 1975 represent a 2.4% share of all areawide trips. But BART's share of areawide trips between home and work is much higher; the 381,000 weeekly BART work trips represent a 5.2% share of all weekly work trips. BART's trip market share is highest for very long trips. Of all work trips taking more than 55 minutes, BART carries 38.3%. Two travel surveys: (1) the May 1976 BART passenger profile survey, an on-route self-completion questionnaire survey of 8,000 BART riders, and (2) the BART impact program May 1975 areawide travel survey, a telephone interview survey of 1,000 individuals.
