THE LOCAL IMPLICATIONS OF BART (BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT) DEVELOPMENT

The report presents the final results of the Local Policy Implications Work Element. The report assesses whether BART has achieved the original objectives of local communities. The report also outlines local policy implications in the form of practical guidelines for local government officials either considering an investment in rapid rail transit or in the process of designing and constructing a rapid rail transit system. Implications are presented for each of nine original community objectives for the BART system. This material is further organized into five chapters relating to major areas of local policy--transportation, land use, finance, economic development and environment.
