The Economic, Social, and Environmental Impacts of Transit Infrastructure on Regional Economies

August 26, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

With the federal government expected to boost infrastructure spending, planners need to analyze how potential transit projects shape regional economies, influence labor markets, impact different demographic groups, and affect a variety of pollutants such as carbon dioxide emissions.

During this presentation, Dr. Garcia and I will quantify an array of critical economic, social, and environmental impacts of public transit system investments on local, state, regional, and national economies. We will also review three case studies that forecast the impacts of transit investments in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
