Title A Network of Livable Communities: Evaluating Travel Benefit Effects of Alternative Transportation and Community Design for the National Capital Region
Subject Land use; Regional planning
Description This study indicates that the Washington DC region could reverse the trend towards a growing number of motor vehicle trips per household and cap the growth of vehicle miles of travel per household by 2010. This paper is only a beginnings, and is not presented as a regional plan. The idea behind it is to indicate the benefits of an overall change of direction within the region as a whole, not to make specific suggestions for individual communities.
