SURTC Research Digest Published

The first annual SURTC Research Digest has been published and is available online. The SURTC Research Digest provides a number of articles discussing recently completed research projects. The articles are highly condensed, non-technical versions of the full studies, but they provide more depth and detail than what is published in our newsletter. This edition of the SURTC Research Digest includes articles on seven research projects completed in 2010. Topics range from the mobility concerns of the elderly and people with disabilities to the impact of fuel prices on individuals' travel choices. Additional topics include technology adoption by rural transit agencies, perceptions of higher education students in regard to employment in the public transportation industry, the role that public transportation plays in health care, and efforts to coordinate rural transit services. The intent of this publication is to make our research findings accessible to a wider audience. The publication can be downloaded from the SURTC website at the following link: 2011 SURTC Research Digest (pdf).
