This "Synthesis" report offers an overview of the key findings
from five years of research into the relationship between Transportation and
Regional Growth. The study's sponsors see this body of research as a springboard
for a wider public discussion about the policy alternatives facing this region.
These research findings and implications should stimulate fresh coverage of
the issues by the media and a better-informed debate among elected and appointed
public officials at all levels. Advocacy groups will find no silver bullets
with which to arm their push for preferred solutions, but every group interested
in better transportation and land-use policy will find a body of facts and
analysis that will change the way the region considers its future choices.
This publications serves as a starting point for that discussion.
