LAND-USE IMPACTS ON TRANSIT RIDERSHIP

This paper appears in a compendium of conference papers and reviews the empirical literature, which explores the relationship between land use and transit use. From the literature review, at least six studies report direct relationships between residential density and transit ridership. Three studies assert that mixed land uses generate more transit trips than any single land use. Two studies show that pedestrian-friendly urban design boosts transit riding. And finally, older neighborhoods capture higher transit mode shares than new neighborhoods. Findings from a transit ridership study conducted in Dade County, Florida (Miami), are summarized.
