    Thus, depending on the size and capitalization of a transport operator, capital costs can be higher than for a public counterpart. What are the current barriers and how might we reconsider our approach to incentivize investment in more resilient systems? Funding versus Financing Although often used interchangeably, there is an important difference between funding and financing. Policy-oriented analysis of how the public sector can establish property rights to encourage successful private transit. All the land is valued each year and a percentage tax applied.

    Housing would become more affordable through increased supply, and whole neighborhoods could be revitalized. Transportation infrastructure, like several infrastructure classes, has a significant level of public involvement ranging from direct ownership and management to a regulatory framework that defines operational standards for dominantly privately-owned infrastructure. Urban Transportation Economics. While a PPP may reduce several risk factors because of the implicit public support, both from a financial and regulatory perspective the government retains its potential to tax and coerce to achieve its goalsthe abatement of risks also has unintended consequences. People and businesses have rearranged themselves and their activities in time and place to lessen the impacts of congestion, probably leading to more spread-out land-use patterns although the land-use impact cannot be precisely predicted from theory.

    In addition, delaying projects that reduce emissions or eliminate safety hazards also has obvious negative political and economic effects. Most freight locomotives operated in the United States are diesel-electric and use diesel for fuel, although some Class I companies are testing locomotive technology powered by liquefied natural gas LNG. Seto, K. This underlines the paradigm between the long term character of infrastructure and the short term perspective prevailing in finance. This business model has been in use for centuries, particularly in the public utility sector. Terminals represent an asset class on their own.

This results in monies being diverted to reactive, recovery efforts, and less that is made available for strategic development. Pendyalaa and G. Small, Kenneth A. Circella, G. We just need to look at how water, an essential live-giving resource is priced or valued in relation to other non-essential resources.

Lee-Gosselin, M. Analysis of mass transit policy in the United States, with emphasis on quantifying the inefficiencies of transit and highway investment and pricing.

Hanson and G. Although a level of privatization is commonly perceived as a desirable outcome for the efficient use and operation of transportation infrastructures, privatization comes with limitations. In many jurisdictions, the government roles involve well-defined responsibilities that are not expected to change.

Scale economies are behind proposals to use land-use regulation to bolster transit demand by creating areas of high-density residential, commercial, or industrial development. There is often a misalignment between the time range of the infrastructure project and the time range of the financing.

Denmark already collects a land tax for local expenditure. Financial problems related to the residential real estate sector are likely to incite many holding companies to diversify their assets, even outside the United States.

Transportation assets are also so substantial that they are only accessible to the largest equity firms. An independent study carried out for Transport for London estimated that between andnear two of the 11 new stations, Southwark and Canary Wharf, the JLE caused land values to rise by 2.

Because of scale economies in mass transit, it makes sense to focus service on those few markets with potentially high passenger density, especially suburb-to-downtown commutes and local travel in densely populated low-income areas.

Chan, Y. Innovative finance provides an array of tools and institutional arrangements as alternatives to traditional, grant-based funding strategies. A similar proposal may break a thirty-year impasse over completing the final link in the Long Beach Freeway near Los Angeles.

This problem could be alleviated by giving the subsidies in the form of fare discounts rather than as grants to transit agencies. She started her career as a transportation planner before becoming interested in the carbon markets and, more recently, in alternative financing and investment options related to resilience.

A comprehensive look at numerous anticongestion policies and their effectiveness, concluding largely that the only ones that are effective are politically infeasible.

Understated risk means that resilience itself becomes fundamentally undervalued.

Privatization can thus be a strategy to end cross-subsidizing by tapping private capital markets instead of relying on public debt. Jones, G. Cambridge: Harvard University Press.

Klein, Daniel B. Ewing, R. The challenge becomes how to build our way towards a more sustainable and resilient infrastructure system. Success depends on the specifics of the situation and the details of any accompanying regulatory or franchising arrangements.

Schafer, A. Frankfort Press: Dublin. Barry, M.The California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority (CAEATFA) has broad authority to provide financial assistance for renewable energy, energy efficiency projects, advanced transportation projects and manufacturing facilities that conserve energy, reduce air pollution and promote economic development and jobs.

This report summarizes a number of revenue stream options and financing tools currently available under Texas law. Researchers selected four case studies because they represent a diverse set of projects outside the four largest Texas metropolitan areas and were delivered through the use of creative funding match agreements and financing tools.

This course focuses on the decision-making processes involved in the development of new urban infra-structure.
