Lessons Learned in Transit Efficiencies, Revenue Generation, and Cost Reductions
Presented by: Joel Volinski, Director, National Center for Transit Research, University of South Florida
Over the years, transit systems have responded to budget challenges by becoming more diligent
and creative in developing ways to generate non-traditional revenues and to reduce costs without raising fares or cutting service. Mr. Volinski will discuss a project, first reported on in 1996, whose objective was to collect innovative ideas from transit agencies throughout the country. The ideas collected were then synthesized and redistributed to transit agencies throughout the nation, allowing all agencies to have the potential to replicate successful techniques. Mr. Volinski will also provide a sampling of the 200 successful ideas that have been put in place in dozens of transit agencies across the country.
