This report presents an analysis of a 1972 home interview survey of 2,541 persons living near BART, after most of the system's construction but before its operation. Most of the survey dealt with anticipated rather than actual impacts, although perceived impacts of the system's construction were included. The analysis emphasized tests of the significance of relationships between perceived (or anticipated) BART environmental impacts and hypothesized determinants of those perceptions including specific characteristics of BART, its physical setting, and the respondents themselves. Results of the analysis included the finding that most residents had very favorable attitudes and expectations regarding BART's effects on them. Variations in these responses tended to be related mainly to the respondent's distance from BART and his or her plans to make use of the system.
