The paper is an examination of one aspect of the BART Impact Program, its evaluation of impacts of the system on ethnic minorities. It is primarily a discussion of the rationale for the inclusion of specific ethnic minority concerns in the overall evaluation program. The BART Impact Program is a comprehensive assessment of BART's impacts on the social and economic life of the San Francisco-Oakland metropolitan area. Goals of the program are to elucidate the relationships between public transit and community development and assess costs and benefits of a rail rapid transit system. Specific objectives of the BIP are to determine what the impacts are, who is affected, why anticipated results are or are not occurring, and how this knowledge of BART may be useful to decision makers.
