TREDTransit Calculator

Analyze the economic contribution of your transit system

 

Developed by EDR Group in conjunction with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the TREDTransitTM Calculator simply and easily assesses the economic impacts of your transit system. 

 Up until now, very few transit agencies have performed economic impact studies due to the high cost.  With TREDTransit, you can analyze the different aspects of transit economic impacts - ranging from spending effects to travel time and cost effects. 

TREDTransit Results 

TREDTransit is designed using simple data entry of your agency's annual budget information that is compatible with what agencies provide to the National Transit Database (NTD) for annual reporting summaries.

Both tabular and graphic representations of your results are provided showing the economic impacts from your agency’s expenditures, including exploration of the following perspectives:

  • Jobs, wages, sales and value-added supported by both agency operations and capital expenditures
  • Understanding both direct and subsequent (multiplier) effects as agency activities ripple through the local economy
  • Understanding the diverse occupational mix of jobs supported by agency operations and capital activities
