GCSC Seminar “How Effective is Commuter Rail in Spatially Pairing Supply and Demand for Commuting Infrastructure? ” with Joanna P. Ganning
Tuesday, October 6, 2015, 4pm
Aline Wilmot Skaggs Biology Building (ASB)
American suburbanization and highway infrastructure have developed simultaneously, with research showing that highway construction induces demand (American Public Transportation Association, 1997; Brock and Souleyrette, 2013). Commuter rail is an alternate form of transportation meant to support journeys to work. Yet research to date has not established these systems’ efficacy in attracting those migrants most likely to use such an amenity. Through the application of a modified population deconcentration model, this manuscript finds that in our case study region (Salt Lake City, UT), the provision of a commuter rail station significantly increases out-commuting, signaling success in attracting migrants requiring commuting infrastructure.
