Abstract

How important are public transit systems, such as fixed-route bus lines, to workers and businesses? In new research which examines transit accessibility in the Rust Belt, Dagney Faulk and Michael Hicks find that an increase in bus systems’ per capita operating expenditures is associated with lower rates of employee turnover. This in in turn is worth millions to businesses in reduced turnover costs.
