Seeking research linking transit investment, reduced vehicle trips

I will be speaking in front of our county next week about a new city-county comprehensive plan that includes our region's first major effort towards mass transit, including light rail, commuter rail, and bus transit.

The board is concerned about supporting any transit efforts because they have yet to see any solid evidence that transit reduces single-occupancy vehicle trips and eases congestion.

Does anyone know of studies I should look at to bring before them?

Yes,

Reid Ewing in his Rutger's Study has a great wealth of information on reducing VMT et al. The workbook comes from seminars he gives to planners, etc., and could be found at your local city planner's office.
