INCOME DISTRIBUTIONAL EFFECTS ON URBAN TRANSIT SUBSIDIES

SUBSIDIES TO URBAN PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN CANADA ARE FINANCED FROM GENERAL MUNICIPAL OR GENERAL PROVINICIAL REVENUES, OR FROM PROFITS ON OTHER ROUTES OR ON PUBLIC UTILITIES. THE CONCLUSIONS FROM THIS STUDY INDICATE THAT THE NET EFFECT IS OFTEN REGRESSIVE AND THAT IN GENERAL LOW-INCOME GROUPS DO NOT BENEFIT. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR FURTHER RESEARCH.
