LAND USE IMPACTS OF RAPID TRANSIT: IMPLICATIONS OF RECENT EXPERIENCE. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The report reviews evidence of land use impacts of recent major rapid transit improvements and draws conclusions concerning the extent and nature of such impacts and the conditions under which they have occurred. Transit improvements studied are primarily post-World War II in origin. American and Canadian examples are stressed, although European experience is treated briefly. Virtually all major modern American and Canadian rapid transit improvements are included, covering conventional rapid rail, commuter rail, light rail and bus/busway. In addition to conclusions on general patterns of land use impact causes, research recommendations and Federal policy implications are drawn.
