The Transitway Impacts Research Program (TIRP) answers questions about the economic, travel, and community impacts of transitway corridors in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
The research program is measuring the impacts of transitways on property values, land use and housing mix, businesses, travel behavior, environment and public health, safety, and community cohesion.
Research Synthesis: Transforming Community
The synthesis pulls together findings from TIRP studies completed over the past seven years as well as findings from two related projects. It summarizes the actual and projected impacts of transitways on the Twin Cities region, offering lessons learned to help guide the build-out of the rest of the network most effectively. It concludes with a set of implications for policymakers.
