This paper evaluates criticism of rail transit, including the recent report, "Rail Disasters 2005: The Impact Of Rail Transit On Transit Ridership." It examines claims that rail transit is ineffective at increasing public transit ridership and 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transportation system performance, that rail transit investments are not cost effective, and that transit is an outdated form of transportation.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.
