REGIONAL FINANCING ALTERNATIVES FOR MASS TRANSIT. VOLUME I: SUMMARY
Increasing mass transit deficits and declining central city fiscal strength generated strong interest in regional taxation for transit. This report, volume 1 of 5 volumes, summarizes the other four volumes of the study and presents the results of two case studies regarding the distribution of tax burdens under alternative central city and regional financing systems. The main focus of the study is on regional or metropolitan-wide taxation to subsidize mass transit. The study examines an earnings tax, a sales tax, a property tax, and a surcharge to state income taxes, each levied on a central city and a regional basis in two case study areas--Atlanta and New York City.
