Interactions between transportation, especially mass transportation, and high-rise high-density living pose interesting questions. Attempts were made to measure these in typical major cities of the United States and in several other countries. It was generally found that, historically, transportation has done much to shape all cities. In countries where government policy fosters high-density residential development, transit is an epecially effective tool in shaping development, regardless of density. Transportation planners can make important contributions in planning high density. Transit and high density living can be mutually supportive, but one does not necessarily assure the other where free market real estate conditions prevail.
