A PLANNING TOOL TO STUDY PUBLIC TRANSPORT FINANCING ISSUES . PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1989 ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE ROADS AND TRANSPORTATION ASSOCIATION OF CANADA, CALGARY, ALBERTA, SEPTEMBER 17-21, 1989

In Canadian cities, transit financing is usually based on contributions from three partners: riders, local municipalities and provincial governments. In large metropolitan areas such as Toronto, Montreal or Quebec, recent trends about population aging and related urban sprawl are both causes and symptoms of the increased burden on the central city. One manifestation of this phenomenon is the intense negotiations which occured in the Greater Montreal Area in 1989, resulting in monetary demands from the Montreal Urban Community Transit Corporation to other transit authorities for covering "spill-over effects" (typically, financing impacts caused by multi-network trips made by non-residents). This paper addresses the methodology involved in measuring the costs and benefits associated with a transit network, and the modelling of multiple imputation scenarios. (TRRL )
