The project has examined the implications of the impacts that the 71 mile Bay Area Rapid Transit System has had to date on the transportation disadvantaged. Three special population groups are the focus of analysis -- ethnic minorities, the elderly and handicapped. These groups are of special concern for transportation planning and policy because of either low-income status or mobility related impairments. This report integrates the study of BART's impacts on the transportation disadvantaged in each of four major impact areas examined in previous interim project reports -- environmental, mobility, economic and land use. Findings are reported from the investigation of twenty-three issues related to the entire range of BART's impacts on the transportation disadvantaged. Evaluation of these findings is made in the context of the level, nature, and degree of equity in the incidence of BART's economic impacts.
