LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION: BASIC THEORY

FOUR PARTIAL MODELS OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TRANSPORTATION AND LAND USE ARE PRESENTED, EACH REPRESENTING A DIFFERENT SLICE OF A SINGLE UNIFIED VIEW OF THE BASIC THEORY IN THE FIELD. ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO TRANSPORTATION AS A PROVIDER OF ACCESS AND AS A CONSUMER OF LAND, BOTH WITH AND WITHOUT VARIATIONS IN RELATIVE LEVELS OF CAPITAL INTENSITY. THE INTENT IS TO PROVIDE A NORMATIVE FRAMEWORK FOR EVALUATING TRANSPORTATION POLICY AS IT EFFECTS LAND USE. ONE OF THE GENERAL CONCLUSIONS INDICATE THE TRANSPORTATION SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO COMPETE FOR SCARCE RESOURCES, INCLUDING LAND, ON THE BASIS OF THE ABILITY OF TRANSPORTATION TO CONTRIBUTE (INDIRECTLY) TO AGGREGATE WELFARE, THE SAME AS ANY OTHER LAND USE. /AUTHOR/
