S.2324 An Act to generate revenue to expand transit options

This bill would allow a municipality or group of municipalities to form a transit improvement district (TID) which will generate revenue to establish public-private partnerships for first mile / last mile transit connections, such as small shuttle bus systems. Modeled off of the Business Improvement Districts statute, this mechanism would allow cities and towns to work together with the private sector and the Department of Transportation to develop efficient transportation systems in their communities. The bill would establish requirements that the municipality or municipalities must follow prior to creating a TID, including public meeting and ratifying vote requirements, as well as the process for making any changes subsequent to the establishment of a TID.
