By: Barry Jr., ThomasContributor(s): Ankner, William | Bernstein, ScottPublication details: Transportation Research Board, 2001; Conference proceedings 24, Description: nr 24, s. 41-5Subject(s): USA | Conference | Financing | Transport | | Partnership | 02 | J13Bibl.nr: VTI P9000:24Location: Abstract: Projects that span different modes of transportation, either by linking them together or by creating new facilities that accommodate multiple forms of transport, are becoming more common. These projects are often very complex and necessitate new financing strategies. Fortunately, the junction of multiple modes also creates some opportunities. Florida's Miami Intermodal Center, for example, blends many different modes and thus involves many stakeholders; the diversity of interest in the project leads to a diversity of funding sources that can be mixed and matched in helpful ways. In Rhode Island, projects with multiple beneficiaries are able to tap into a broader base of resources, especially by looking to a broader range of potential partners, including state agencies with common interests but no explicit transportation mandate. The interrelationship between transportation and other forms of infrastructure--such as housing location--is becoming more important to recognize and offers additional opportunities to make the most of existing investments.
