The American Association of Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Center for Excellence in Project Finance was established in the 2005 SAFETEA-LU transportation authorization act. The mission of the Center for Excellence in Project Finance is to support State Departments of Transportation in the development of finance plans and project oversight tools to leverage funding and advance transportation projects. This website provides information on outside resources, projects, transportation funding and financing, technical assistance and research services.
This 2004 report conducted through the Transit Cooperative Research Program provides a comprehensive assessment of the state of the practice and the benefits of transit-oriented development (TOD) and joint development throughout the United States. This report is a good resource particularly for transit agencies, developers and those involved with development, and decision makers considering TOD.
Completed for the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) in 2006, this study estimated the needs and revenues available at all levels of government from 2007 to 2017. The report examines existing and emerging revenue options to close the nation's highway and transit investment deficits. Necessary implementation steps to help secure the needed additional transportation investment on a sustainable basis are also discussed.
This online guide to transportation funding options is hosted by the Texas Transportation Institute. The guide provides a summary of funding options for all levels of government and key project examples for highway, transit, rail and aviation.
