Transit has traditionally provided a public good in Canadian communities, including affordable transportation and congestion reduction. But the community benefits associated with transit are becoming more diverse thanks to new studies and research.

Exploring and understanding these and other community benefits is key to properly communicating the impact that a transit service has on a community.
