INCREASING COMMUTING BY TRANSIT AND RIDESHARING: MANY FACTORS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED
This report provides the Congress with information to use when it considers legislative and funding proposals directed at increasing commuters' use of mass transit and ridesharing. It suggests that, when deciding on authorizations and appropriations for transit expansion, the Congress should consider the potential effects of expansion on operating costs, deficits, and subsidies, and also that the Congress should consider providing separate Federal funding for ridesharing programs, rather than relying on the diversion of Federal-aid highway funds by State and local governments.
