The demand for public transportation investments far exceeds the funds available. While states and communities seek additional revenue sources to maintain current transit assets and serve rapidly changing travel markets, they need methods to help decide where to allocate their limited resources.
The TRB Transit Cooperative Research Program's TCRP Research Report 227: Prioritization of Public Transportation Investments: A Guide for Decision-Makers provides practical advice for transportation agencies looking to improve their prioritization practice for public transportation projects.
There is also a presentation available for use on the project's summary and results.
