Research to Practice Transit Symposium
In October 2022, T-SCORE sponsored the symposium where the theme was “translating transit research into practice”. This program offered a platform for transit experts to share insights on how evidence-based research can be used to leverage large-scale investments in transit and rail. Some of the topics discussed also included zero-fare transit, fare collection, multimodal coordination, transit resiliency, zero emissions, strategic funding, cost management, and intersections with public health. Read more about the program here.
Sustainable Travel Workshop
In August 2022, T-SCORE hosted a Sustainable Travel workshop for the residents of the City of Peachtree Corners, GA at Curiosity Lab, in collaboration with the city. Discussions in this workshop consisted of sustainable travel modes and feedback from residents about problems related to sustainability in the city.
HBCU-Georgia Tech Transport Research Forum
In May 2022, researchers with a desire to influence the transportation field from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the South gathered at the Georgia Institute of Technology for the first ever HBCU-Georgia Tech Transport Researcher Forum. The Forum offered a space to discuss opportunities for collaborative research, and had a total attendance of 30 researchers from 13 colleges and universities. Organized by faculty Michael Hunter and Kari Watkins from Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, this event sought to bring together diverse faculty with similar research interests to share about their successes, and explore planning future multi-disciplinary and multi-university projects together. Check out more about the program here.
Lexington International Transit Symposium
In April 2022, this international symposium showcased current research of public transit and emerging travel modes. Check out the 15 presentations by the T-SCORE team here.
Visit from Don MacKenzie
Dr. Don MacKenzie of the University of Washington visited Georgia Tech to speak about the interaction between transit and ride-hailing. Ride-hailing services may serve as a substitute or a complement—or some combination thereof—to transit. Dr. MacKenzie shared a study of how US commuters’ stated willingness to ride transit is influenced by the price of ride-hailing services and whether the service is provided by an autonomous vehicle.
2021 Research to Practice Transit Symposium
This symposium was sponsored in part by T-SCORE. View the program here.
2020 Transit Research Symposium
In December 2020, T-SCORE co-hosted the Interstate Transit Research Symposium. View the program here.
2020 Transportation Research Board (TRB) Webinar
In October 2020, Greg Erhardt and Jawad Hoque led the TRB webinar, “How Accurate are Traffic Forecasts?”, which was attended by roughly 500 people. Watch the webinar here.
