The working paper examines BART's influence on employers' location decisions in the three-county BART service area. Individuals who had participated in or who were familiar with their firm's location decisions were interviewed, and relevant interviews from other studies of the BART Impact Program were reviewed. Specific issues addressed include BART's direct and indirect effects on location decisions, BART's influence on centralization or decentralization of businesses and industries, and the extent to which firms have located near BART in order to gain visual exposure.
