|TCRP Releases Three New Publications|
The Transportation Research Board recently published the following Transit Cooperative Research Program publications:
Report 145—Reinventing the Urban Interstate: A New Paradigm for Multimodal Corridors. This report presents strategies for planning, designing, building, and operating multimodal corridors, freeways, and high-capacity transit lines running parallel in the same travel corridors.
Report 150—Communication with Vulnerable Populations: A Transportation and Emergency Management Toolkit. This report describes how to create a communication process to reach vulnerable populations regarding their transportation options in emergencies. The toolkit provides a guiding framework and tools for constructing a scalable, adaptable communication process built on a network of agencies from public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Together the partners form interconnected communication channels with the ability to carry out the function of emergency communication not necessarily possible by working alone.
A PowerPoint slide show that summarizes the toolkit is available online at TRB’s web site.
Legal Research Digest 36—Transit-Oriented and Joint Development: Case Studies and Legal Issues. This digest examines a combination of large, medium, and small transit-oriented development (TOD) and joint development projects since 1999 and provides comprehensive case studies.
Sample documents are included with the print version of the publication in CD-ROM format. The CD-ROM is also available for download from TRB’s web site as an ISO image. Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD-ROM from an ISO image are provided as well.
