Abstract

In a recent issue of the Journal of Transport Geography, an article “The impact of light rail on congestion in Denver: A reappraisal,” authored by Ransom and Keleman (2016) criticized an earlier article that we wrote entitled “The impact of light rail on traffic congestion in Denver,” which appeared in the Journal of Transport Geography in 2012 (Bhattacharjee and Goetz, 2012). We would like to respond to several incorrect statements and mischaracterizations in the Ransom and Keleman article, as well as to clarify the findings from our original study.
