With case studies in Alabama, Oregon, and Vermont, the 2011 NADO Research Foundation report Exploring the Role of Regional Transportation Projects as Rural Economy Drivers(PDF) explores regions where public transit is playing a role in connecting employees to work, getting people to services, and revitalizing downtown areas.  Through partnerships at the local and regional level, regional planning and development organizations are facilitating improved mobility, which in turn supports the regional economy.  This report was produced through the NADO Research Foundation’s Center for Transportation Advancement and Regional Development under a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration.
