AN ANALYSIS OF RAPID TRANSIT INVESTMENTS: The Buffalo Experience

The study examines the Buffalo, New York, Light Rail Transit (LRT) system now under construction. It shows clearly that, in a region of decline urban areas of the Northeast and North Central states, the economic and demographic indicators must be defined and used as planning constraints. The report is organized to lead the reader through the critical parts of the analysis and clearly show how the impacts of investment are established and can be used. The report provides information that can be of use to public officials, planners, and private sector concerns.
