THE RENAISSANCE OF RAIL TRANSIT IN AMERICA

Americans living in metropolitan areas, faced with growing highway congestion and air pollution, are turning to the operators of public transportation and asking them to do something about it. Recognizing that land use and transportation have to relate, metropolitan areas have been turning to rail transit. Because rail transit represents a long-term investment, it can draw long-term development to its stations and begin to re-establish a closer relationship between land use and efficient transportation. This regional plan report was written to evaluate the situation of the growing public sentiment for rail as a solution to congestion and dirty air and the criticism of recent rail projects.
