Abstract

Almost thirty years ago, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences asked John Meyer to organize an exploration of the links between transportation and poverty. During the spring of 1968, a dozen papers were commissioned, in collaboration with Harvard’s Program on Regional and Urban Economics and also with the Joint Center, on topics ranging from the impact of free public transit on urban poverty to the calculation of the social costs of urban expressways.
