The Second Annual Transit Research Symposium at UC Davis
The second Transit Symposium highlighted transit research underway at the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies Transit Research Center. It consisted of morning research sessions, including innovations in transit and shared use mobility opportunities, and afternoon workshops where public transit stakeholders, practitioners, policy makers, and researchers formulated a critical research agenda for public transit centered around the following areas:
- Transit’s fiscal cliff
- Ridership recovery
- Microtransit as a service model
- Electrification of transit
Participants engaged in conversation about various research needs. Overall, the symposium provided a great space for collaboration and education about recent transit research.
