Economic Impact of Alternative Downtown UGM Strategies

by Carol H. Walters, Texas A&M Univ, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Goods Transportation in Urban Areas

Abstract:

In downtown Dallas, four strategies have been tested: consolidated public truck terminals; provision of off-street loading space in individual buildings, under ordinance; curb space management regulations; and, before planning began in earnest, a minimum of regulations. This paper assesses the impacts upon each affected group: the public sector, carriers, shippers and receivers, and building owners and managers. The analysis provides a useful set of criteria for determining the most cost-effective approach to facilitating this vital process.
