NITC-RR-540 By Steven Farber
eBook (PDF): $0.00
The goal of this study is to develop a method for assessing social equity impacts of distance-based public transit fares. According to federal law, disparities must be evaluated by the transit... More > agency, but the techniques identified by the Federal Transit Authority fail to account for disparities in distances travelled by transit users. This means that transit agencies lack guidelines for assessing the social equity impacts of replacing flat fare with distance-based fare structures. Our solution is to incorporate a model of trip generation and distance travelled into a GIS System, which enables a planner to visualize and compare transit-cost maps. We apply the method to a case study in the Wasatch Front, Utah, where the Utah Transit Authority is exploring a switch to distance-based fares. The analysis reveals that overall distance-based fares benefit low-income, elderly, and non-white populations. However, the effect is geographically uneven, and may change depending on location.< Less

Connecting People to Places: Spatiotemporal Analysis of Transit Supply Using Travel Time Cubes By Steven Farber
Paperback: $4.10
Prints in 3-5 business days
This report consists of a collection of three stand-alone research papers. The first defines a new data object, the public transit travel time cube, and demonstrates its use in measuring changes in... More > transit provision over time, changes in accessibility to jobs, and the impacts of bicycling on the last mile problem. The second paper consists of a study of temporal mismatch between observed travel patterns and the spatiotemporal patterns of transit supply in the Wasatch Front. The third paper expands the food desert literature by measuring temporal fluctuations in food accessibility over the course of a typical day, and examining the trends for disparities between socioeconomic subgroups. Our findings indicate that time-based measures of transit accessibility provide more nuanced abilities for us to understand how people are impacted by temporal variability in transit provision.< Less
