    • Abstract:
      It is the vision of the director that NCTR will be the preeminent university-based transit and alternative-transportation research institute in the nation by the year 2001. It will be the university of choice for those students wishing to gain comprehensive knowledge of operational and policy issues faced by transit and alternative transportation managers. It is our goal to be recognized and appreciated as the first institution contacted by transit mobility managers when seeking ways to enhance their agency's performance on behalf of the traveling public. The principal focus will be on public transportation. Public transportation, broadly defined as alternatives to the single occupant vehicle, includes modes such as carpool and vanpool, paratransit, bus, and guideway transit technologies. In addition, the research activities will focus on the interface of public transit with other modes such as auto, walk, bike, and intercity modes as well as the integration of public transit considerations in general transportation and land use planning tools and procedures. ISTEA and TEA-21 each reinforced the growing awareness of the importance of multimodal thinking and increasing investment in public transportation. Public transportation remains an area of critical national interest as evidenced by funding commitments and its obvious tie to national and local goals regarding the environment, mobility for the population, safety, economic competitiveness and opportunity, congestion relief, and quality of life. In choosing to focus on public transit, NCTR will leverage the experience and staff expertise of the University of South Florida's Center for Urban Transportation Research, and focus on a topical area that is acknowledged as a critical component in our transportation system.
