The study focuses on how BART is influencing the distribution and volume of retail sales in the BART service area. Shoppers in six retail areas were surveyed to ascertain how their shopping patterns had changed since BART service began. Retailers throughout the BART service area were interviewed to determine whether BART influenced their location decisions or retail sales. Sales tax data in seventeen retail areas were analyzed to search for sales trends associated with proximity to BART. (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white)
