An Analysis of the Impacts of the Fixed-Route Transit in Florida

As part of its effort in developing Transit 2020: Florida’s Strategic Plan for Public Transportation in 1998, the Department in 1997 asked the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) to undertake an analysis of the economic contributions that fixed-route transit made to the state. While recognizing potential impacts on other areas, that analysis quantified four types of economic impacts: benefits to transit users, benefits to highway users, savings to transportation disadvantaged programs, and increased earnings from new federal grants. CUTR developed different methods for these impact types and applied these methods to data that reflect 1995 conditions of urban fixed-route transit in Florida. The result is the 1997 report titled An Analysis of the Economic Impacts of Urban Transit Systems on Florida’s Economy.
