WHAT ARE THE SHORTFALLS OF PAST SPATIAL RESEARCH? (Zonal level analysis based on urban focus, assumptions of homogeneity within zones) 4
Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point 5 Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point Demand Potential (DP) Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point = = Equivalent DP 1 2 3 4 5
Criteria to be a Transit-Supportive Zone 1.Centroid must be a local density maximum 2. EDP must be greater than or equal to transit viability threshold 3.Assumes transit riders are willing to walk one-half mile Burlington, VT & Surrounding Montpelier, VT A A B B 6 1% of land 43% of trips (86% intercity) 21% of VMT
Network-Overlap Ratio Formulation N-O Ratio = L n,m / L m networks coincide perfectly networks do not share any links in common. 01 Evaluate existing merged and idealized networks of fixed-route transit in Vermont 11 Transit Network Total Miles of Network % Vermont Towns Reached (of 255) % Population Reached (of 609,000 in 2000) Population Reached Per Mile of Network N-O Existing1,3184477358-- Energy-Efficient1,15339753950.58 Connectivity- Fairness 1,38846793490.58 Access to Critical Locations 2,03963902690.64
