A NEW TOOL FOR LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

If transportation planners are actively to consider land use patterns, even going so far as to advocate land use policies, they'll need improved analytic and planning tools. The author describes his California Urban Futures Model which simulates the effects of specific land use and transportation policies on urban growth patterns. The model allows transportation planners to coordinate with city planners before new land use patterns develop, instead of responding after the fact.
