A TRANSIT-ORIENTED CITY

Cities are designed to accommodate the automobile. A transit-oriented city is one that from inception is designed for public transportation modes rather than the automobile. In such a city, automobile use would be possible but unnecessary. The goal of a transit-oriented city is to make public transportation travel more attractive than driving so that automobiles will be little needed or used. One possible transit-oriented city is described. From this example we see that many of the advantages of current urban and suburban life-styles are attainable without automotiles. The building of a transit-oriented city as an experiment is suggested. /Author/
