REVIEW OF SOME ANTICIPATED AND OBSERVED IMPACTS OF THE BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM
The report briefly summarizes some of the most important impacts of the Bay Area Rapid Transit System as revealed by a survey of the Technical and Nontechnical Literature. The report has been prepared as a Reference and Planning Guide for the BART Impact Program. It describes both anticipated Impacts that have been stated by Public, Officials, Planners, and Observers since BART was planned more that a decade ago, and actual Impacts as reported in newspapers and in the few Technical Studies of Bart Impact that have been already performed. No attempt is made to prove or disprove the statements about Impacts that have appeared in print. About 100 technical and planning reports and 4,500 newspaper articles were scanned.
