EFFECTING CHANGE IN PUBLIC POLICY: FINANCING URBAN TRANSPORTATION IN THE NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY AND CONNECTICUT REGION

IN THIS STUDY AN "ENTERPRISE" APPROACH WAS ADOPTED THAT WOULD BE APPLICABLE TO THE ANALYSIS OF PROBLEMS RELATING TO FINANCING URBAN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS IN ANY METROPOLITAN AREA. THIS APPROACH TO ACCOUNTING FOR REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS REFLECTS THE VIEW THAT AN OVERALL, COORDINATED EFFORT IS REQUIRED TO OBTAIN A BALANCED TRANSIT NETWORK IN METROPOLITAN REGIONS. BOTH THE METHODOLOGY AND THE STATISTICAL FINDINGS SHOULD BE OF INTEREST TO TRANSPORTATION SPECIALISTS AND TO THOSE INVOLVED IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION. IN ADDITION, THIS PAPER SHEDS SOME LIGHT ON THE MORE GENERAL PROCESS OF INFLUENCING PUBLIC POLICY. IT PROVIDES AN 8-YEAR HISTORY OF BOTH SUCCESSFUL AND UNSUCCESSFUL EFFORTS TO ACHIEVE CHANGE IN TRANSPORTATION FINANCING IN THE NEW YORK METROPOLITAN REGION. /AUTHOR/
