"Importance of Investing in Rural Transit in Georgia "

Dr. Shatakshee Dhongde, Associate Professor, School of Economics, Georgia Institute of Technology

Dr. Laurie Garrow, Professor, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Co-Director, Center for Urban and Regional Air Mobility, Georgia Institute of Technology

Moderators: Jarrod McCarthy and Paul Jarrell, Members of the Georgia Regional Commission

Georgia has the sixth largest rural population in the United States. A growing proportion of rural population is older and is in need of increasing transit service in these areas. Given the current pandemic and the subsequent economic crisis, we will discuss the importance of investing in rural transit in Georgia. We will provide estimates of economic costs and benefits of existing transit services and we will highlight the gaps in transit service, which need to be addressed for the state to better serve Georgia’s rural population.
