ACCESSIBILITY APPLICATIONS IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION

The report outlines the theory and methodology for developing accessibility studies to evaluate transportation service impacts at the corridor, subarea or metropolitan levels. A computer program (Metropolitan Accessibility Program or MAP) is described that will facilitate such an analysis. In addition a typical case study application is presented illustrating how employment accessibility is modified in a corridor after the building of a high speed transit line. Data indicates the relative degree to which the Black population subgroup in the corridor benefits from the accessibility improvements. The program is suggested for use in planning and evaluation studies.
