The Federal Role in Public Transit

  • 2043 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

Featuring Randal O’Toole, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; and Jarrett Walker, President, Jarrett Walker & Associates, consultants in public transit planning and policy; moderated by Matt Weibel, Director of Government Affairs, Cato Institute.

Transit ridership is declining nationwide despite billions of dollars in federal subsidies, observes Randal O’Toole, one of the nation’s leading critics of the transit industry. He argues that the federal government should stop subsidizing a dying industry. Jarrett Walker — one of the most innovative thinkers in the transit community — disagrees, arguing that public transit has a vital role to play in urban transportation and urban growth. Join us to hear these two experts debate the appropriate role of federal funding in urban transportation.
