ERRATA: CHAPTER 15--LAND USE AND SITE DESIGN Discovery of an erroneous source tabulation* and substitution of original raw data lead to the fol- lowing corrections to Chapter 15, "Land Use and Site Design," of TCRP Report 95: In the paragraph on page 15-10 headed "Transit mode choice and ridership," the second and third sentences should read: "The effect of density in contributing to volume of riders is illustrated by Arlington, Virginia's focusing of development on Metro stations. There key-station ridership, the second decade-plus after opening, rose 15 percent in 12 years, compared to an overall average change of 0 percent for other pre-1980 stations." In the paragraph on page 15-32 immediately below the paragraph headed "Density and Transit Choice," the last two sentences should read: "The volume effect of density is illustrated by the `Arlington County, Virginia, Transit Oriented Development Densities' example under `Case Studies.' Arlington's policy of focusing dense development on its Washington Metro stations is thought largely responsible for 1990 to 2002 ridership growth at the key Rosslyn, Court House, and Ballston stations of 9, 26, and 18 percent, respectively. During the same period, the ridership for other Metrorail stations opened prior to 1980 was, from the perspective on an overall average, static (Brosnan, 2000; WMATA, 2002)." Within the "Arlington County, Virginia, Transit Oriented Development Densities" case study, on page 15-124 substitute the following for the last two sentences of the "Results" subsection (immediately in advance of the "More..." subsection): "Transit ridership has grown along with development at the three major stations. Between 1990 and 2002, weekday 24-hour Metrorail pas- senger entries grew from 13,600 to 14,800 at Rosslyn; from 5,300 to 6,700 at Court House; and from 9,500 to 11,200 at Ballston. During this same period, in comparison, overall change in ridership at the other 34 Metrorail stations open as of 1980 was negligible when computed as an average includ- ing stations with growth, stations exhibiting decline, and stations where ridership was stable." Within the same case study, to the "Source" subsection (which becomes "Sources"), add the fol- lowing source: "Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), `Metrorail Passenger Surveys: Average Weekday Passenger Boardings.' Spreadsheet (June 6, 2002)." At the end of the "References" section, add the same source. Note: Given its relevance to Transit Oriented Development, the "Arlington County, Virginia, Transit Oriented Development Densities" case study is presented again in full, with corrections and a Metrorail ridership update to 2006, as a case study within Chapter 17, "Transit Oriented Development." * An error in the Metrorail ridership element of a chapter source led to erroneous ridership data and conclu- sions in the "Arlington County, Virginia, Transit Oriented Development Densities" case study presented in the 2003 printing of TCRP Report 95, Chapter 15, "Land Use and Site Design," and the corresponding elec- tronic (pdf) version of Chapter 15, as well as in summaries within the main body of the chapter. This errata sheet covers the needed corrections to Chapter 15. 17-134
