Abstract

Uncoordinated land use and transportation planning has promoted a sprawl pattern of development in many US metropolitan areas. This article examines why and how metropolitan land use and transportation policies in the USA should be reoriented and linked in the future in order to meet the new mandates of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991 and the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990. The findings of this article would be useful to local and metropolitan planners, transportation engineers and public policy makers engaged in metropolitan land use and transportation planning.
