TCRP Seeks Topics, Releases Report

The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) is accepting potential study topics through March 16 for the FY 2018 TCRP Synthesis Program.

The program reports on various current practices and produces a compendium of the best knowledge available on practices found to be the most successful in resolving specific problems. Syntheses are relatively short, targeted for about 60-80 pages plus reference materials.

Panel members conduct a preliminary screening and ordering of the topics before making their final selection at an annual meeting, typically held in May. Subsequently, the TCRP Oversight and Project Selection Committee gives final approval to the selected topics.

Also, TCRP has made available a pre-publication, non-edited version of Research Report 196: Private Transit: Existing Services and Emerging Directions, which provides information about private transit services and the ways they address transportation needs in a variety of operating environments.

The report includes an overview and taxonomy of private transit services in the United States, a review of their present scope and operating characteristics and a discussion of ways they may affect the communities in which they operate—along with several case studies and other supporting information. It also examines ways that private transit services interact with communities and public transit agencies, as well as the resulting impacts and benefits.
