Synthesis of Information Related to Transit Problems. Topic SA-20. Public/Private Transit Partnerships

New light rail transit (LRT) lines have experienced undesirable frequencies of LRV/motor vehicle collisions, particularly where motor vehicles cross LRT tracks at signalized intersections.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>Light rail systems have addressed the problem and made changes to pavement markings, signs, signals, street geometrics, operating procedures, and training to reduce the frequency of collisions. A synthesis study will help other transit agencies to better understand today's state of the art and learn from the experiences of others in similar situations. The effort will be a study of the mitigation methods used to reduce LRV collisions with motor vehicles at signal-controlled intersections.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>It will include success stories and the specific actions taken to achieve positive results. <span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>Examples of unsuccessful actions are also of interest.</font></span></p>
