The paper consists of in-depth, policy-oriented case studies of BARTs impacts on selected communities, synthesizing all case study work in the BART Impact Program. The variety of BART impacts are described for downtown San Francisco and downtown Oakland, representing urban core areas; the Mission District of San Francisco, the Rockridge neighborhood of north Oakland, and Richmond, representing urban residential areas; and Walnut Creek and Fremont, selected as typical suburban residential communities. BART impacts on the natural environment, public policy, institutions and lifestyles, transportation service and travel behavior, as well as land use and urban development are evaluated in terms of pre-BART and no-BART alternatives. Comparative statistics on population, employment, housing, land use and travel behavior are presented, and pre- and post-BART land use and zoning are mapped for each study area. Each case study concludes with an analysis of similarities and differences, and an assessment of the policy implications of the BART experience to date.
