Intermodal Transportation Education and Training

This conference was the fifth in a continuing series of conferences and workshops on intermodalism that have been organized by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) since the passage of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). The objective of the conference was to examine educational and training needs related to all aspects of intermodal transportation: technology, advanced logistics, information systems, planning, and management. Over a 3-day period, participants reviewed existing and developing transportation education programs across all disciplines and examined the roles of educational institutions, private industry, and government in setting an agenda for meeting intermodal transportation education and training needs. These proceedings contain the Chairman's summary, welcoming remarks, keynote address, case studies, status reports on current programs, and the response of a panel of distinguished transportation professionals to the conference findings.

Does the Built Environment Influence Physical Activity?

TRB Special Report 282: Does the Built Environment Influence Physical Activity? Examining the Evidence reviews the broad trends affecting the relationships among physical activity, health, transportation, and land use; summarizes what is known about these relationships, including the strength and magnitude of any causal connections; examines implications for policy; and recommends priorities for future research.

System-specific Spare Bus Ratios

Documents critical site specific variables that influence transit agencies' spare bus ratio policies. It profiles a select group of transit agencies of varying sizes and geographic locations and describes their operating environments in order to relate how these affect the number of spare buses each agency needs to meet its service requirements.

A Concept for a National Freight Data Program

Calls upon the Department of Transportation and its Bureau of Transportation Statistics to take the lead in coordinating freight data collection in the US. This work focuses on increasing the linkages between sources of data and filling data gaps to develop a source of timely and reliable data on freight flows. A national framework is needed.

A Transportation Research Program for Mitigating and Adapting to Climate Change and Conserving Energy

In reviewing proposals for transportation research programs as part of reauthorizing the federal surface transportation program, the Transportation Research Board recognized a gap: no proposals explicitly addressed research to mitigate GHG emissions and energy consumption attributable to passenger and freight travel or to adapt to climate change. A Transportation Research Program for Mitigating and Adapting to Climate Change and Conserving Energy is the product of a study to suggest research programs to fill this and other perceived gaps. Specifically, this book identifies research needs with regard to policies and strategies relating to the use of the transportation system and to assist infrastructure owners in adapting to climate change; focuses on research programs that could provide guidance to officials at all levels responsible for policies that affect the use of surface transportation infrastructure and its operation, maintenance, and construction; and aims to help officials begin to adapt the infrastructure to climate changes that are already occurring or that are expected to occur in the next several decades.
