UCLA's Michael Manville discusses Neighborhood Change and Falling Transit Ridership. 

Transit ridership in Southern California has been falling for over ten years. This ridership decline has multiple causes, but one that remains understudied is neighborhood change. Relatively few neighborhoods offer higher-quality transit service, and relatively few people (most of them lower-income) use transit. As transit-friendly neighborhoods become more expensive, are people who would ride transit being pushed to other areas, and depressing ridership. Professor Manville will present preliminary results into an examination of this question.

Michael Manville is an Associate Professor of Urban Planning at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. Both his research and teaching focus on the relationships between transportation and land use, and on local public finance. Dr. Manville’s research has been published in journals of planning, economics, urban studies, and sociology.
