FACTORS INFLUENCING FUTURE TRANSIT EFFICIENCY: EVALUATION OF THE DEMOGRAPHIC IMPACT ON GUIDEWAY TRANSIT SYSTEMS USING GIS AND ANN TECHNOLOGIES
In this report, various demographic factors influencing urban guideway transit ridership have been identified and evaluated by geographic information system technology. Demographic trends at the national level have been summarized with respect to the aging population, suburbanization, automobile. This study centers around 3 major U.S. metropolitan areas including Greater Washington, D.C., Boston, MA, and Chicago, IL. The relationship between guideway transit ridership and demographic characteristics is modeled using the artificial neural network (ANN) technology.
