ADEQUACY OF TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES IN BLACK COMMUNITIES: THE PROBLEM OF RESIDENCE-SHOPPING PLACE SEPARATION

The overall objective of this research was to examine relationships between residential segregation, and the decentralization of retail and commercial activities, and the suitability of transportation systems for shopping travel in three metropolitan areas: Baltimore, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. It was determined that suburbs of metropolitan areas have grown to be predominantly nonblack, and central cites of the largest SMSAs contain the majority of the black population. At the same time, retail establishments have grown at phenomenal rates in suburban locations while declining in significant proportions in central cites.
