States’ Support of Non-Highway Modes of Transportation: Investigation and Synthesis
Report URL: Download Report
There is a growing understanding that Kentucky’s economic health and vitality is dependent on having an effective, efficient, multi-modal transportation system. In response to this growing understanding, the transportation advocacy group, Kentuckians for Better Transportation (KBT), offered to sponsor a synthesis study to identify and document how other states support the non-highway modes. For the purposes of this study, the non-highway modes are air, public transportation, rail, and waterways. KBT selected the KTC Test Site to gather and synthesize the necessary data. The objective of the study was to determine how Kentucky and other selected states support and assist these non-highway transportation modes and to identify leading and innovative initiatives that could be considered for further action in Kentucky.
The results of this study have been shared with numerous key stakeholders and interest groups. It is anticipated that the study results will be shared with members of the Kentucky General Assembly as they prepare to address multi-modal transportation issues in future legislative sessions.
