TRB Webinar: Prioritization of Public Transportation Investments

The demand for public transportation investments far exceeds the funds available. While states and communities seek additional revenue sources to maintain current transit assets and serve rapidly changing travel markets, they need methods to help decide where to allocate their limited resources.  TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 from 2:30 - 4:00 PM Eastern that will explore practical advice to improve the prioritization process for public transportation projects. Presenters will focus on methods used to prioritize transit capital projects and on cross-modal decision-making, specifically the comparison of public transit and non-transit projects.

This webinar features research from TCRP Research Report 227: Prioritization of Public Transportation Investments: A Guide for Decision-Makers.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, you must sign into to register.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
