This analysis evaluates several local funding options for public transportation system improvements. Using eight criteria, the author evaluates 18 potential funding options. The evaluation finds that there are no particularly cost effective or easy-to-implement funding options. The authors thus recommend that communities use a variety of funding options to ensure funding stability and broad cost distribution. Funding options evaluated in the study include fares, taxes, station rents, and advertising.
