Evaluating Rail Transit Criticism

A new report evaluates rail transit criticisms to discern legitimate and helpful analysis from errors and misrepresentations.

This report evaluates criticism of rail transit. It examines claims that rail transit is ineffective at improving transportation system performance, that rail transit investments are not cost effective, and that transit is an outdated form of transportation. It finds that critics often misrepresent issues and use biased and inaccurate analysis. This is a companion to the report "Rail Transit in America: A Comprehensive Evaluation of Benefits."
