R-183 – Report 195: Broadening Understanding of the Interplay Between Public Transit, Shared Mobility, and Personal Automobiles: This report explores how shared modes—and ridesourcing companies in particular—interact with the use of public transit and personal automobiles.
Urban mobility is rapidly evolving in the United States, particularly since the introduction of app‐based transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft. As these services become more widespread, many have begun to question what effect they are having on the cities where they operate, including on public transit ridership, single‐ occupancy vehicle trips and traffic congestion. This report—an extension of TCRP Research Report 188: Shared Mobility and the Transformation of Public Transit (2016)—attempts to address these questions by further exploring evidence of how TNCs are affecting the use of public transit and personal automobiles in several regions.
Web Document 70: Improving the Resilience of Transit Systems Threatened by Natural Disasters: The report shows how to identify and implement appropriate resilience strategies to strengthen operations and infrastructure throughout an agency. It explores ways that agencies can become more resilient through incremental adjustments in planning and small changes in what they do every day.
This Guide is designed to help agencies identify the conditions necessary to move from an often scattershot process to an improved state, where resilience measures are incorporated in transit agency policy, planning, asset management, capital investment, maintenance and operations––just as safety, security and customerfocused service have become a mainstream part of transit industry culture.
Report 194: Knowledge Management Resource to Support Strategic Workforce Development for Transit Agencies: The guidebook explores the importance of knowledge management (KM), which is an organization’s process for collecting, storing, and sharing organizational information and knowledge, and provides guidance on implementing KM strategies in transit agencies.
Knowledge management (KM) is the process an organization uses to collect and manage organizational knowledge and information. This Guidebook was developed to guide transit agencies through KM and its implementation, providing resources and examples relevant to the transit industry to help them understand and implement KM within their own transit agencies.
Research Results Digest 114: Synthesis of 2018 Information Related to Transit Practices: This is a staff digest of the progress and status of TCRP Project J-7, “Synthesis of Information Related to Transit Practices,” for which the Transportation Research Board is the agency conducting the research. Individual studies for the project are managed by the following staff serving under the Cooperative Research Programs Division of the Transportation Research Board.
