HOW TO DO A TRANSIT STATION LAND-USE IMPACT STUDY

Several improvements in the conceptual basis and methodology for studies of land-use impacts have occurred over the past two decades, but the framework is still incomplete because the need to incorporate the policy context into the study design has not been fully recognized. A revised model for impact studies is proposed, and the approach is illustrated by a case study of a planned rail rapid transit station. One of the major differences between this and previous methods is that the method described in this paper acknowledges several possible outcomes or impacts as a function of alternative public policies in addition to the transit station itself. Five categories of impacts are evaluated: public facilities, environment, market, neighbourhood, and costs and revenues. /Author/
