REORIENTING METROPOLITAN LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION POLICIES IN THE USA

Uncoordinated land use and transportation planning has promoted a sprawl pattern of development in many U.S. metropolitan areas. This paper examines why and how metropolitan land use and transportation policies in the U.S. should be reoriented and linked in the future in order to meet the new mandates of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991 and the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990. The findings of this research would be useful to local and metropolitan planners, transportation engineers, and public policymakers engaged in transportation and metropolitan land use planning.
