LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION IN AN ENERGY EFFICIENT SOCIETY

Most people are aware of the close relationship between land use and transportation. However, little is known of how to apply this conceptual knowledge in achieving the goal of a mobile and energy efficient region and nation. Despite the research studies and publicity to the contrary, transit can be an energy saver; energy savings can be an argument for transit. The comparison should not be made simply between a bus and a van pool or between a streetcar and a heavy-rail vehicle but between transit-oriented environments and automobile-oriented environments. /Author/
