A study of past and prospective business development around rail transit stations in the Washington DC area. Washington has one of the very few new and extensive rail transit systems in America, although expectations of transit system-induced revitalization in this area have not uniformly been met. This book develops an econometric model of local development (LOCDEV) around major public investments, applies it to the existing Washington transit system, and uses it to forecast future development levels around new stations. The book includes a user's guide to the LOCDEV model and concludes with reflections on modelling and forecasting.

Around the world, mass transit is struggling to compete with the private automobile, and in many places, its market share is rapidly eroding. Yet a number of metropolitan areas have in recent decades managed to mount cost-effective and resource-conserving transit services that provide respectable alternatives to car travel. What sets these places apart? In this book, noted transportation expert Robert Cervero provides an on-the-ground look at more than a dozen mass transit success stories, introducing the concept of the "transit metropolis"—a region where a workable fit exists between transit services and urban form. Cervero has studied cities around the world, and he makes a compelling case that metropolitan areas of any size and with any growth pattern can develop successful mass transit systems. Following an introduction that frames his argument and outlines the main issues, Cervero examines five different types of transit metropolises, with in-depth case studies of cities that represent each type. He considers the lessons of the case studies and debunks widely held myths about transit and the city. In addition, he reviews transit program efforts underway in five North American cities and discusses the factors working for and against their success. Cities profiled include Stockholm; Singapore; Tokyo; Ottawa; Zurich; Melbourne; Mexico City; Curitiba, Brazil; Portland, Oregon; and Vancouver, British Columbia. The Transit Metropolis provides practical lessons on how North American cities can manage sprawl and haphazard highway development by creating successful mass transit systems. While many books discuss the need for a sustainable transportation system, few offer examples of successful systems and provide the methods and tools needed to create such a system. This book is an invaluable resource for transportation planners and professionals, urban planners and designers, policymakers, and students of urban design and planning.

"This book provides the perfect comprehensive introduction to mass transit for anyone interested in transportation planning as a career, as well as for those who simply have a personal interest in the subject area. It is a policy-oriented book that contains some technical material, but avoids in-depth coverage of the electric and mechanical engineering aspects." "Distinctly factual, and not ideological, the book offers readers a balanced view of the debate between highways and transit - carefully presenting both sides of controversial issues. The intent is to give readers the solid understanding necessary to analyze problems objectively, and to assure that transit proposals are rationally planned and evaluated." "The book dedicates a full three chapters to historical and political background, and three others to the transit technologies or "modes" currently in use. Furthermore, readers will find coverage of the design of transit networks, operations and management, and impacts on land use, energy consumption, and the environment. Lastly, two chapters cover ridership characteristics, and two deal with economics and finance."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Under a public choice analytical framework, this book applies formal economic measures to the passenger and taxpayer benefits of public transit service in the United States. Approximately 400 local transit budgets have been renewed annually for more than 25 years. These budgets epitomize Braybrooke and Linblom's concept of disjointed incrementation and Buchanan's concept of public choice since local legislators funded transit despite constant academic criticism of transit performance.
