STUDY OF DEVELOPMENT PATTERNS

The working paper examines BART's effects on Bay Area, corridor, and station area land use and development patterns. BART's effects on the supply and demand for housing, commercial, and institutional uses are evaluated, using a variety of analysis techniques. These include regional regression analysis of BART's influence on population, housing, and employment; statistical analyses of survey results; and key informant interviews. Particular emphasis is placed on effects on minorities. The paper also synthesizes earlier work elements of the BART Impact Program Land Use and Urban Development Project. Study conclusions are that BART has not affected regional development patterns, but has had effects on station area (mostly commercial and institutional) and corridor development patterns. These effects, however, have been less than the anticipated level of influence. The policy implications of these findings also are addressed. (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
