MEASURING SOCIAL IMPACTS OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION MODES: A VALUE APPROACH

Proceedings of the Twenty-Ninth Annual Ohio Transportation and measuring existing or held values of residents of impacted areas and users of transportation systems, discusses the theoretical aspects of the differences between value-behavior and verbal-value failings. The contingent conditions associated with quantification of values, requirements for such quantification, and identification of some alternative quantifying techniques are examined, and two useful matrix forms for displaying values (for the public presentation of quantified values) are described. The objects of the values are specified as those positive and negative social impacts which accrue to alternative transportation modes. A figure is used to explore valuing for alternative transportation modes assuming continued growth of dispersion points and continued growth of points of conflux in many spatially segregated areas. Valuing related to the automobile, public transit, and rapid transit is illustrated. The importance is emphasized of the precise identification and measurement of valuing activities in transportation planning and other social variables in the planning process.
