REDUCING TRANSIT COSTS

Although study data indicate that substantial cost reductions can be made in New York, some permanent financing mechanism must be developed to supplement existing, federal, state, and local assistance programs. A list of about 30 areas for potential costs reduction in medium sized transit systems was presented. It is noted that complementary systems to provide for public transportation needs is proving to be a successful cost-saving innovation in some areas.
