Abstract

This paper uses a simultaneous model of census tract population and employment to study the economic impacts of Atlanta's MARTA rail transit system. The results indicated that MARTA has had no discernible impact on total population or employment in station areas, but it has altered the composition of employment in these areas in favor of the public sector.
