Presented is a concise review of Financial Incentive Programs (FIPs) in the transit industry, the goals for the workshop on FIPs, and a brief outline of how the workshop was designed. The content of the workshop is summarized. FIP data collected from the thirty transit authorities that participated in the three workshops is presented and analyzed. Participants were asked to identify the FIPs that have been or are being used by the transit authorities and to evaluate the success of those programs. Observations on the use of FIPs that were offered in Philadelphia, Indianapolis, and San Francisco are offered. Suggestions are made concerning the direction that should be pursued in the future.
