Ridership Impacts of Transit-Focused Development in California
- Author(s): Cervero, Robert
- et al.
This report examines evidence on the degree to which existing large-scale developments near rail stations in California have encouraged transit usage. Ridership patterns are studied for housing, office-workplace, and retail developments. In addition to quantifiying the ridership impacts of transit-focused developments, the study also seeks to explain those factors which appear to most directly account for the travel choices of people living, working, and shopping near rail stations.
