ALLOCATING TRANSIT COSTS AND FUNDS

It is noted that the manner in which transit costs should be allocated, and guidelines as to how much money should come from fares or from any other source are a function of local conditions. The issue pragmatic versus rational approaches to generating financial mechanisms is discussed, as well as the issue of block grants as a financing mechanism for mass transportation. The need is indicated for research concerning institutional arrangements and the financing mechanisms at the local level.
