Description

Public transit offers social and economic opportunities by linking residents with employment and social services and connecting firms with consumers. It also plays a key role in attracting residents and business to cities and neighborhoods potentially serving as an urban development or redevelopment strategy. At the same time, transit may have unintended consequences such as rising rents and property values that lead to the displacement of residents and businesses. The purpose of this session is to explore both the opportunities and consequences stemming from transit investments. We welcome both quantitative and qualitative contributions.
