Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Public Transportation. Task 15. Updated Research Agenda for State DOT Public Transportation Divisions and NCHRP Project 20-65

State departments of transportation (DOTs), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP), university transportation centers (UTCs) and others provide research of particular interest to public transit divisions within state DOTs. Due to time constraints of state DOT transit division employees, it is often difficult to keep abreast of available and on-going research of particular interest to them. In addition, there is a need to provide guidance as to what research should be conducted on behalf of State DOT transit divisions and to identify appropriate research programs to potentially address these needs (e.g., TCRP, NCHRP 20-65, UTC, FTA). The objectives of this research were to summarize research recently completed or currently underway that would be of particular interest to the transit divisions within state DOTs, and to develop a research agenda of future research needs. This research included the following tasks: (1) through surveys and other means, identified recently completed (i.e., within the past 5 years) research, and research in progress by state DOTs, FTA, TCRP, and others that would be of particular interest to the transit divisions of State DOTs; (2) categorized and summarized this research by key subject area; (3) identified research needs of particular interest to the transit divisions of state DOTs; and (4) prepared a detailed research agenda that provides proposed scopes, funding requirements, and potential research programs (e.g., TCRP, FTA, UTC, state DOT).
