February 10, 2011 This seminar provides information to those who plan public services, particularly public transportation and alternative forms of transportation, during times of tight budgets and declining revenues. Dozens of techniques used by transit agencies to either generate new revenue or reduce costs are described. References are made to better planning of resource allocation through “Comprehensive Operations Analysis” to help reduce service hours without severely impacting transit users negatively. The seminar also emphasizes the importance of partnerships between transit agencies and highway agencies and how they can provide facilities and services that are of mutual benefit to private vehicle operators and public transit users. It also provides examples of how public transit agencies can partner with a multitude of public-private and public-public partnerships. By the end of the seminar, the attendee will learn the significance of non-traditional methods of maintaining as much transit service as possible even when general revenues are down, which will be a benefit to the economy of a community through continued mobility for those who are in most need of public transit.
