ANALYZING INDIRECT IMPACTS OF ALTERNATIVE AUTOMATED-GUIDEWAY-TRANSIT SYSTEMS

A computer methodology is described for analyzing at a sketch-planning level five types of indirect impact of automated guideway transit: right-of-way land consumption, community disruption, household and business displacements, aesthetics, and noise disruption. Application of the technique in a recent case study of dual-mode transit planning in Milwaukee is discussed. The methodology is also applicable to the preliminary analysis of other automated-guideway-transit systems. The procedures used in the inventory of potential link and station characteristics and in the analysis of network and corridor alternatives are reviewed. It is concluded that such analyses of neighborhood and environmental factors should be coordinated with other demand-and-supply-oriented, sketch-planning methodologies. /Author/
