Abstract: This paper describes the development, testing, and application of a microcomputer financial analysis model called the Transit and Highway Revenues and Improvement Forecasting Templates (THRIFT). This program permits State and local transportation agencies to evaluate the adequacy of existing financial mechanisms to pay for needed transportation improvements, to evaluate the benefits and costs of proposed transportation projects, and to conduct a dynamic sensitivity analysis over a projected five year period.
