OVERVIEW OF WORKSHOP BREAKOUT SESSIONS ON: FUNDING - RESPONDING TO THE NEW ENVIRONMENT: ISTEA AND BEYOND

These breakout sessions discussed the funding perspective of transit and transit management. Session participants identified the following issues and barriers: the loss in federal and state support is apparent to all; there are conflicting calls for transit to both be business-like and yet still meet many regulations and requirements; the culture shift throughout the country limits transit's options; the political environment challenges transit; and there are the "real world" challenges of getting the buses out on the street. Solutions identified by participants are listed.
