APTA Issues Ground-Breaking Analysis: Public Transportation Boosts National Growth Potential

APTA President & CEO Michael Melaniphy speaks before a packed room on Capitol Hill May 15 to announce the results of a new report that says public transportation investment powers significant productivity gains. “The data are clear: One of the strongest tools to create a vital and productive national economy and build strong communities is investment in public transportation,” Melaniphy said. “This study breaks new ground in calculating the significant productivity gains of public transportation investment.”  Others at the Infrastructure Week event included the National League of Cities, the U.S. Travel Association, and the Environment and Energy Study Institute. The study was conducted for APTA by the Economic Development Research Group Inc. Find details below at “APTA Productivity Report Released at Infrastructure Event.”
