State and National Transit Investment Analysis: Quick-Response Analyses for SAFETEA-LU Commissions

  Project Data
Funds: $100,000
Research Agency: Cambridge Systematics
Principal Investigator: Arlee Reno
Effective Date: 2/21/2006
Completion Date: 8/22/2006

The estimates should be generally consistent with methodologies and data sources used by the U.S. Department of Transportation, which has been required by Congress every 2 years to prepare a status report on the condition and performance of the nation's highways, bridges, and mass transportation systems. The intent of this effort is to continue to provide credible needs information to guide future public transportation capital investment.

The objective of this research is to develop an independent and comprehensive estimate of public transportation capital needs to inform decision makers and the industry of the national magnitude of needs. The needs estimate for transit investments will inform the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and will contribute to APTA's estimating and reporting of transit needs.
