Which Alternative Fuel Technology is Best for Transit Buses?
Available in: Category: Transit Operations,Planning and Design Publish Date: 01/01/2017
The choice of which fuel technology to use for transit buses is an important issue for public transit agencies in terms of budget impact, operating performance, bus purchasing decisions and related refueling and depot infrastructure, as well as greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions. Carnegie Mellon University's Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation and Traffic21 Institute explores currently available fuel choices in terms of cost, environmental and health impacts and other factors, and makes recommendations for transit buses in this policymaker guide - Which Alternative Fuel Technology is Best for Transit Buses.

Writing a Coordinated Human Service Transportation Plan
Available in: Hardcopy Category: Planning and Design,Mobility Management,National RTAP,Transit Personnel Publish Date: 05/22/2009
Beginning in FY 2007, the Safe Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) required that projects funded under Individuals with Disabilities, JARC, and New Freedom programs have a locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan. While the task may seem daunting, the plan can act as a tool in coordinating the human service transportation programs in your area, resulting in improved communication and streamlined operations for everyone involved.

Don’t worry, others have successfully developed and implemented coordinated plans, this National RTAP Technical Brief on Writing a Coordinated Human Service Transportation Plan contains resources available to help guide you through th...

Zero Emission Vehicles: Forecasting Fleet Scenarios and their Emissions Implications
Available in: Category: Transit Operations,Capital Assets Publish Date: 12/31/2019
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Web-Only Document 274: Zero Emission Vehicles: Forecasting Fleet Scenarios and their Emissions Implications analyzes a set of scenarios of infrastructure development, policy changes, and cost parameters, with a suite of 49 simulations across those scenarios conducted to assess their impact on nationwide zero emission vehicle (ZEV) adoption and the corresponding levels of exhaust emissions. The model used in the scenarios analysis is a consumer choice model that estimates future sales, populations, and fuel consumption of advanced technology vehicles (ATVs), including ZEVs.
