- Transit Investments effects on business output
- Examining Some Generative Impacts
Firms may accrue benefits because the transport investment allows more direct input into their production processes. Generative gains can be made where a transit system lowers transport and shipping costs by reducing the amounts of time needed to load, buy in resources, and workers.
Labor productivity can be expected to increase, too with easier commutes for workers.
Face to face meetings are easier to facilitate on a passenger transit level, allowing for easier access to intra-metropolitan areas, and links to airports allow faster deployment of workers to exterior contracts. There has been a large amount of research into quantifying the actual monetary gain from this impact.
- Access to transit
Aside from the safety benefits of fewer accidents affecting working patterns, regional income rises as new businesses are attracted into a region. This means that ease of travel is a major consideration.
