TCRP Report: Maintaining Transit Effectiveness Under Tight Fiscal Constraints
Joel Volinski presented the findings from research he has completed for a TCRP report entitled “Maintaining Transit Effectiveness Under Major Fiscal Constraints.” This presentation will share how transit agencies have performed extremely well and increased ridership in spite of the national recession that resulted in most transit agencies either raising fares or cutting service to deal with significantly reduced property and sales tax revenue. Examples of successful techniques will include non-traditional revenue generation, partnerships with many public and private entities to share costs, better data-driven management, and greater utilization of technology among others.
