This book develops an econometric model of local development (LOCDEV) around major public investments, applies it to the existing Washington system, and uses it to forecast future development. Station Area Planning (SAP) is the process of planning and designing the space within and around transit stations.

SAP looks at the desired features of the station itself as well as the use of the land surrounding the station and how it relates to the community’s vision for the future.
