Project Title:

Transit Research and Development: Federal Role in the National Program
PIN: SAIS-P-03-05-A        

Major Unit:

Transportation Research Board

Sub Unit: Studies and Special Programs Division

RSO: Menzies, Thomas

Subject/Focus Area: Transportation and Infrastructure


Project Scope
This project will provide an independent review and assessment of the needs of the public transportation industry that could be met through future investment in a national research and technology program. The committee will advise the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) as the agency develops a strategic agenda for transit research and will dentify the roles that FTA and industry stakeholders could play in carrying out that agenda. The committee will advise FTA regarding:

1. the federal role in transit research, relative to the roles and activities of others (private sector, Transit Cooperative Research Program [TCRP], states, universities, etc.) engaged in transit research:
2. high-priority opportunities proposed by the agency; and
3. processes that should be in place to ensure that the FTA receives the input and cooperation of transit research stakeholders in developing a federal
research program.

Sponsors: U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Transit Administration

This project was initiated on October 2003 for a period of 36 months. In November 2006 the period of performance was extended for a further 36 months.

The committee will prepare a letter report each year summarizing its findings and recommendations.
