Evaluating the Impact of Transit-Oriented Development
This report examines the impact of transit-oriented development. Transit-oriented development (TOD) is an increasingly popular urban form. Based on a survey of residents of TOD projects in areas served by Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Fort Worth T, and Capital Metro (Austin) rail transit, moving into TOD decreases VMT by an average of 15 percent, or about 3,500 miles per year, which impacts TxDOT motor fuel tax revenues. The data also indicate that these households shift their choice of route to include more arterial roads versus highways. Differential behavior is observed among the three areas studied with the greatest impact being on the DART system and the Capital Metro system showing smaller changes in TOD resident travel behaviors. Residents of TOD choose their housing based mostly on commuting distance and lifestyle characteristics, such as proximity to dining and entertainment venues. Proximity to a transit rail station is at least moderately important for 57 percent of respondents. The report recommends that TxDOT look to incorporate TOD into facility planning and design and seek ways to extract value from TOD projects. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc32970/

The Fiscal Impacts of DART's Transit-Oriented Development
This report discusses the fiscal impacts of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit's (DARTs) transit-oriented development. In 2005, the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research prepared a report for DART in which they estimated the total value of new investment completed, underway or planned near DART LRT stations since 1999. Using only those projects reported to the press, they calculated the total value of the transit-oriented development (TOD) at approximately $3.3 billion. These new investments had had, or will have, significant impacts on local property taxes as well as local and state sales taxes. This report presents the preliminary assessment of the annual revenue streams associated with TOD adjacent to DART LRT stations. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc30415/

The Impact of Higher Natural Gas Prices on the Texas Economy
This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses the economic effect of rising gas prices on the Texas economy. It surmises that although rising natural gas prices are a boon to gas drilling, production and distribution industries and their employees, the resulting higher costs to Texas industries and households more than offset any gains. Each $1 per MCF increase in the price of natural gas - if sustained - has the net effect of decreasing state economic activity by at least $3.4 billion per year, lowering total employment by more than 34,000, and reducing salaries and wages by $911 million. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc30382/
