Synthesis of Information Related to Transit Problems. Topic SA-19. Transit Systems in College and University Communities

Synthesis 39, Transportation on College and University Campuses, published in 2001 reported on a survey of 30 campus communities, offering information on the planning, implementation, and operation of campus transit systems. Since then, the number of transit systems serving university communities has grown dramatically. An updated review of this topic area will help transit agencies, universities, and other stakeholders to better understand today's state of the practice. This synthesis will document the state-of-the-practice. A review of the relevant literature in the field will be combined with surveys of transit systems of varying sizes. Based on survey results, selected case studies will be developed, describing practices at specific transit operators in order to profile innovative and successful practices, as well as lessons learned and gaps in information, knowledge, and research needs.
