Abstract

Even though in large cities public transportation is a valued asset to the community, in smaller cities public transportation is often overlooked. While most college towns have public transportation systems in place, not all have systems that provide adequate service. This paper explores and begins to quantify the benefits of increased investment into public transportation to both the community and students in college towns. US census data shows that public transportation in college towns is utilized by a higher proportion of residents than the national average, which supports the notion that inferior transportation systems can benefit from additional investment.
