Tarrant County Residents need transit that is Economically Productive

Instead of focusing on transit agencies as a for-profit business, communities should look at modal return on investment (ROI) as a part of a whole, healthy municipal system.

Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is important for the economic health of our community, placemaking & access. In a study of The Economic and Fiscal Impacts of Development Near DART Light-Rail Stations, researchers concluded that the studied TODs around DART’s light rail “... added billions in economic activity for the DFW economy, [and] will serve as a catalyst for future economic growth.” (Shattles and Ball 2020)
