THE BURDENS AND BENEFITS OF BART. A PRELIMINARY CASE STUDY OF RAPID TRANSIT IMPACTS

The burdens and benefits of the Bay Area Rapid Transit system are detailed. This is a preliminary report of findings from the BART Impact Program because BART services are not yet at "design" levels and because they are based on early surveys. The BART system and the Impact Program are described. BART costs and how their financing is accomplished are explained. The benefits and who receives these benefits, the third section, are followed by conclusions on the burden and benefit and the attitude of Bay Area citizens toward the perceived balances.
