Selected Indirect Benefits of State Investment in Public Transportation
TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Results Digest 393: Selected Indirect Benefits of State Investment in Public Transportation explores the full range of benefits that may be associated with investment in public transportation programs, including those that could help offset the cost of transit investments and operations.
Specifically, this report identifies and documents potential indirect government benefits arising from transit investments and services, and provides ways to help states make the case for strategic investment. The report also covers methods and tools for quantifying benefits and provides a conceptual framework for including these benefits along with other economic impact and benefit/cost analysis for transit.
