IMPACTS OF BART (BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT) ON BAY AREA INSTITUTIONS AND LIFESTYLES

The report focuses on the effects of BART on the Social Institutions and Life Styles of Bay Area residents. The project addresses the impacts of BART on three primary institutional spheres and their clients: local political institutions including community responses to BART; Institutions of Higher Education and their students; and Health Care Institutions and their clients. The study of life style impact focuses upon direct and indirect impacts of BART upon the use and experience of different transportation modes, commuters, household routines, family routines, and the family as an institution. BART has had limited impacts on Bay Area life styles and social institutions. It has had the greatest impact upon commuters from suburban residential communities to the central business districts of San Francisco and Oakland.
