    Abstract

    Levinson and Krizek rightly put accessibility at the center of everything: “acces- sibility is a measure of the glue holding place and plexus together... it is what ties land use to transportation” (pg. 46). The problem in metropolitan regions is not con- gestion, they say, but accessibility, formally defined as “the ease of reaching land use (place) given the transportation system (plexus)” (pg. 44). The challenge for planning is not how to reduce congestion but rather “how to satisfy people’s needs and desires for where and how to live” (pg. 14). The concept of accessibility also plays a prominent role in their explanation of how the metropolitan system works.
