Streetcar Economic Impact

As more and more cities explore the feasibility of streetcar development, identifying the potential economic impact will be critical to building the case for public funding.  The Danter Company has case studied existing streetcar systems throughout the country in conducting its Economic Impact Study for Columbus, Ohio..

When considering economic impact, it is important to consider not only ridership, but also the following:

  • Impact on opening land for high density mixed-use development
  • Ability to move not only residents and workers, but also tourists
  • Potential to revitalize blighted areas
  • Ability of system to complement existing transit options (buses, light rail, etc.)
  • Impact on lodging development
  • Impact on residential development
  • Impact on employment development
  • Impact of streetcar access as an attraction amenity to existing development

Our case studies of existing streetcar systems included the following:

  • Analysis and physical inspection of streetcar system
  • Interviews with key public officials
  • Analysis of ridership
  • Identification of streetcar-related development, including lodging, residential, and other commercial development

If your area is considering streetcar development, we'd love to discuss what we could bring to your exploratory process.  For more information, contact Terry Hall at 614-221-9096 or via email.
