Measuring Highway Benefits of Major Transit Improvements

In order to meet the legislative requirement to measure the mobility benefits of transit improvements, the Department of Transportation (DOT) must develop a methodology to calculate the highway-travel benefits from major transit improvements. To succeed, the resulting methodology must be able to produce estimates of transit-related highway-travel benefits that are technically defensible and nationally consistent. Further, implementation of the methodology must be possible within five years so that it can contribute to the evaluation of proposed New Starts projects within a reasonable time frame.
