SYSTEMS APPROACH TO COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION

The government and public are currently considering how increases in traffic congestion, land committed to freeways, and air pollution might be simultaneously ameliorated by suitable new rapid transit systems. What is not clear is the extent to which people would actually use new rapid transit systems, and what some of the indirect socioeconomic effects might be if they did. The overall objective of urban transportation analysis is to study the effects of a new transportation system such as the rapid transit, on the environment and on the socioeconomic conditions of a city.
