FINANCING BAY AREA TRANSIT, POLICY STUDY AND RECOMMENDATIONS. SUMMARY

The Bay Area's transit system is among the nation's most sophisticated and complex. Meeting its future large-scale financing needs will depend not only on concerted and coordinated funding efforts, but also on transit finance policies designed to make the best possible use of transit funds available to the region. Therefore, the Council's policy recommendations focus on the need to combine transit financing efforts with development of a regional transit finance policy designed to coordinate and plan all financial aspects of transit administration and operation. The Council has identified five essential elements of a regional transit finance policy, and has organized its recommendations accordingly. They are: planning for long-term needs, establishing criteria for effective allocations, improving transit productivity and efficiency, encouraging private-sector participation in transit, and expanding financial support for transit. /Author/
