TCRP seeking study topic suggestions

Posted on February 25, 2003

The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) is currently seeking suggestions for topics to be considered for two ongoing research programs--TCRP Reports and TCRP Syntheses. Submittals, accepted from anyone with an interest in addressing problems facing the transit industry, will be evaluated by panels of industry and TCRP experts who will make recommendations on which topics are worthy of funding for further study. The deadline for submitting suggestions for TCRP Reports, typically more in-depth studies that are released in the form of handbooks, design manuals or CD-ROMS, is June 15. Suggestions should be made in the form of problem statements that identify areas such as the research objective, research proposed, estimates on research period and funding required, urgency, and relationship to the strategic goals and policy initiatives of the Federal Transit Administration and to TCRP's strategic priorities. Problem statements can be submitted via the Internet using a form located at www.apta.com/tcrp Statements can also be submitted via email to [email protected] The governing board of the non-profit Transit Development Corp., a research arm of the American Public Transportation Association, will review the research problem statement submittals in the fall of 2003.
