Analyzing Transit Project Costs and Delays

Increasing the reach and capacity of public transit networks will be essential to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. But in California (and throughout the US), transit infrastructure projects have long suffered from cost overruns and deployment delays that reduce the value of investment and erode public trust.

CLEE received funding in September 2020 from California SB 1 research dollars through the UC Berkeley Institute of Transportation Studies to develop a case study approach to identify these overruns and delays, analyze their causes, and develop policy solutions to avoid them in the future. The report will be forthcoming in September 2021.
