Assessing the Effectiveness of Public Transportation Boards

The objective of this research is to develop a handbook that provides an objective self-assessment process and tools to measure the effectiveness of a public transportation board. The handbook shall (1) identify the characteristics of public transportation boards that influence transit system performance, (2) provide a self-assessment process and tools to measure public transportation board effectiveness, and (3) provide guidance as to how board characteristics can be changed to improve effectiveness in the various areas of assessment. The results of an assessment using the handbook should be useful to public transportation board members, general managers, appointing bodies/officials, and others.
