THE EFFECTS OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION CHANGES

This paper uses a general equilibrium simulation model of residential land use to study the long-run effects of transportation changes in a closed city. The effects considered here include the aggregate benefits from the income distributional impact of the changes, in addition to the induced alternations in the physical characteristics of the city and in the location and modal choice of different income groups. The paper breaks new ground in its treatment of modal choice in a location theory model. An interesting point brought out in the simulations is the welfare-interdependence of different groups resulting from their spatial interaction. /Author/
