SPATIAL PATTERNS OF THE JOURNEY-TO-WORK AND MASS RAPID TRANSIT IN LOS ANGELES

The proposed mass rapid transit system for the Los Angeles metropolitan region is examined and evaluated. Data describing the journey-to-work function in the region is analyzed in order to delineate the major patterns that exist, along with the major centers of attraction. The techniques used are those of factor analysis, modal analysis and cluster analysis. All three techniques delineate lightly similar patterns and define identical centers of attraction within the system. The emergent structure is compared with the proposed rapid transit network and comments are made regarding the possible success of the future system.
