RESEARCH NOTE: ANALYSIS AND DEMAND IMPLICATIONS OF THE RAPID TRANSIT VOTE IN ATLANTA

In November 1971 the voters of two metropolitan Atlanta counties agreed to build a rail based rapid transit system, to levy an incremental one cent sales tax to defray the operating costs of the system, and to impose a 15found fare on all public rapid transit modes for the next 8 years. Some questions are raised concerning the demand conditions facing the future rail transit system. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the "Yes" vote in Fulton County and from the analysis suggest some marketing problems that rapid rail transit is likely to face.
