Strategy AC2.7: Explore options for private initiatives to help fill in the gaps of existing transit systems.

Strategy Description

Budget shortfalls, shrinking traditional funding sources, aging and under-capacity infrastructure, and other challenges are leading more transit operators to form Public-Private Partnerships (PPP, or P3) with the private sector to achieve sustainability and growth. Local transit providers should establish partnerships with private organizations with a vested interested in supporting areas in the region with transit.

Additional Information / Case Studies

    • The Detroit Bus Company is a private company whose purpose is to improve access to transit in the city.
