Prediction: D.C. Area Highway and Transit Crowding Will Get Worse

WAMU reports @ Transportation Nation: Prediction: D.C. Area Highway and Transit Crowding Will Get Worse : "

The Washington metropolitan region faces worsening traffic congestion and transit crowding as its population and job growth expand over the next three decades, according to a forecast released on Wednesday by a regional planning group."

Another scare forecast from another Metropolitan Planning Organization. In general when reading these studies:

1. Will behavior not change in response to anything?

2. Will technology not change?

3. Will policy not change?

(On the positive side, they do use a 45 cumulative opportunity accessibility measure for transit).
