Abstract

Dade County, Florida is planning an integrated public transit system to be in place by 1985 and costing close to one billion dollars. One of the goals is to 'provide adequate transit service to elderly and handicapped citizens and to economically-depressed areas. To examine the extent to which the proposed system meets this goal and to conform with federal reporting requirements, an analysis of the potential impact of the system upon the accessibility of various population subgroups to important activity centers was undertaken. Accessibilty was defined in terms of total travel time, walk time, and number of transfers necessary. Accessibility to social services, employment centers, health centers, activity centers, and the CBD was examined. Analysis techniques included the use of histograms and indices of dissimilarity. The level of analysis was the 723 traffic analysis zones in Dade County. - Authors
