AN ECONOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION PLANNING NORMS

The purpose of this working paper is to extend the analysis of urbanized areas to explore the hypothesis that it is possible to develop some preliminary public transportation planning norms from the NTS data. The analysis proceeds on three sections. The first section provides a description of the procedures and results of the econometric analysis. The second section uses the econometric results in an analysis of transit planning norms. The first part of this section discusses and interprets the econometric analysis, and the second part uses the econometric analysis to identify urbanized areas which are exceptions to the typical values for the group of urbanized areas being analyzed. The final section suggests some conclusion about the possibilities for using the 1974 NTS data to develop norms for evaluating public transportation plans.
