DART’s Local Area Benefit/Cost Evaluation System Tool Webinar

March 13, 2024, 1:00 PM. 

What is the economic impact of transit investments? DART's investments create over 41,000 jobs worth $730 million and also produce $226 million annually in local, county, state, and federal taxes, 93% of which are within DART member cities. (DART Value of Transit Final Report)

To help calculate the impact of their investments, DART partnered with TTI to create a tool that evaluates the impact of new transit stations. This tool is designed to provide macro-level estimates of the impacts associated with potential new transit stations at locations not currently part of the DART service area. These impacts include the additional property tax revenues, sales tax revenues, employment, and economic activity associated with the development of a new station.

During this webinar, Brianne Glover with TTI will discuss the tool, its use, and the data it produces.
