BART, the 71-mile Bay Area Rapid Transit System, serving San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and their suburbs, is the first regional-scale rapid transit system to open in the United States in over 50 years. This report is one of a series assessing the impacts of BART on transportation and travel in the Bay Area. The report analyzes the results of two travel surveys: (1) the May 1976 BART Passenger Profile Survey, an on-route self-completion questionnaire survey of 8,000 BART riders, and (2) the BART Impact Program May 1975 Areawide Travel Survey, a telephone interview survey of 1,000 individuals in the BART service area. The report presents information on the socioeconomic characteristics of BART, bus, and automobile travelers, the purposes and other characteristics of their trips, and the shares of areawide travel carried by the modes.
