The NADO Research Foundation has just released a new report on regional transit, developed through its Center for Transportation Advancement and Regional Development in July 2011. With case studies in Alabama, Oregon, and Vermont, this report 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.
