LAND-USE DENSITY, PATTERN, AND SCALE AS FACTORS IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION

This article considers the density and pattern of urban land use in subjective terms to demonstrate the difference between them, illustrate land-use patterns not normally considered, and relate these variables and urban scale to transportation technology. This framework was then expanded into the two-function situation that is most prevalent in the determination of urban transportation demand. From theoretical considerations 10 basic combinations of trip origins and destinations were identified. The relationship of these to transportation technology and especially to the relative importance of line-haul transport is discussed.
