TCRP Dissemination Program Selects New Ambassadors

The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Dissemination Program has selected 11 new individuals to serve as Ambassadors for the program during the 2016-2018 term.

These industry professionals will travel to various areas of the country to enhance the understanding and use of TCRP-sponsored research products. They were selected from a competitive pool of candidates across the U.S. and have backgrounds in operations, executive management, planning, safety, special events and mobility management.

Each Ambassador is expected to volunteer for at least two public transportation venues a year to help promote and disseminate TCRP reports and products.

The list of Ambassadors includes Christina Arthur, ­Chicago Transit Authority; Brent Boyd, San Diego Metropolitan Transit System; Alva Carrasco, VIA Metropolitan Transit; Desmond Cole, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority; Ryan Daniel, St. Cloud Metropolitan Transit Commission; Paula Haskin, Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation; Reeny ­Madathany, Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority; Robert Palladino, New Jersey Transit Corporation; Jamaal Schoby, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority; Jessica Vargas Astaiza, South Florida Regional Transportation Authority; and Brian Waterman, Star Metro-City of Tallahassee.

TCRP was established in 1992 to serve as one of the principal means by which the transit industry can develop innovative, near-term solutions to industry needs and demands. The dissemination effort of TCRP, as managed by APTA, ensures that program-related reports and products reach appropriate industry audiences and interested individuals. As a result of this effort, the TCRP Ambassador Program was developed to expand outreach efforts and is a joint effort among APTA, the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO), FTA and TCRP. COMTO manages the Ambassador program and seeks to continue expanding its outreach.
