Quick-Response Research on Long-Term Strategic Issues

The objective of this TCRP special project is to provide research assistance to support Quick-Response Research on Long-Term Strategic Issues that are identified by APTA. A TCRP panel, comprised of TOPS Committee members, was formed to review and approve these funding requests. Topics selected for this project must be research oriented; research topics are not for advocacy purposes; research results are disseminated broadly, where possible, to public transportation providers and stakeholders; and there will be annual accountability to the TOPS Committee through written reports on how the funds are being used. At the June 2006 meeting of the TOPS Committee indicated its intent to fund this TCRP special project at about $300,000 annually, beginning in FY 2007, with future annual allocations contingent on project performance and available funding. To date, thirty-eight have been authorized. Twenty-eight tasks have been completed, five projects are active, and four tasks are in development. One project (Task 23) was authorized but subsequently canceled.
