Transit Oriented Development: Trip Generation & Mode Split In The Portland Metropolitan Region, Michael Lapham Mar 2001

Transit Oriented Development: Trip Generation & Mode Split In The Portland Metropolitan Region, Michael Lapham

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

The Portland metropolitan region has planned and implemented transit-oriented developments (T.O.D.) along light rail alignments and traditional transit corridors based on the assumption that promoting mixed-use, high density residential development close to transit will reduce vehicle trips, lessen congestion, and reduce air pollution. Oregon has state and local transportation policies that rely on alternative modes of travel to help reduce vehicle trips, yet there is little documentation on how effective T.O.D.s are at actually reducing vehicle trips and total vehicle miles traveled. This report attempts to calculate how successful Transit Oriented Developments in the Portland ...


Light Rail Transit Impacts In Portland: The First Ten Years, Kenneth Dueker, Martha J. Bianco Jan 1999

Light Rail Transit Impacts In Portland: The First Ten Years, Kenneth Dueker, Martha J. Bianco

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

This paper examines how the first decade of light rail transit (LRT) in the Portland region has affected auto ownership, mode share, density, and property values. The empirical analysis provides evidence that light rail has had some positive effect of rail on single-family property values, transit use, and slower growth of two-plus car households in the outer part of the LRT corridor as compared to an outer part of a parallel bus corridor. These effects may be the result of households self-selecting to make housing location decisions where LRT is located, rather than current households changing mode.

This assessment of ...

Effects Of Light Rail Transit In Portland: Implications For Transit-Oriented Development Design Concepts, Kenneth Dueker, Martha J. Bianco Jul 1998

Effects Of Light Rail Transit In Portland: Implications For Transit-Oriented Development Design Concepts, Kenneth Dueker, Martha J. Bianco

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

In the Portland, Oregon, region many local planners have embraced the neotraditional planning concept in the form of transit-oriented development (TOD). One of the primary components of transit-oriented development, light rail transit (LRT), has been in place in Portland long enough to provide data for analysis. Because neotraditional planners often emphasize LRT as a crucial element in decreasing auto use and in encouraging high-density development, this paper examines the effects of LRT in the Portland region including mode share, density, and property values. The empirical analysis provides evidence that light rail alone has not been sufficient to have an appreciable ...
