SURTC has published its 2014 edition of the Rural Transit Fact Book. This publication is intended to serve as a national resource for statistics and information on rural transit in America. The Fact Book includes rural demographic and travel behavior data as well as financial, operating, and fleet statistics and performance measures for agencies receiving section 5311 funding.
UGPTI's first-ever smartphone app is available via iTunes. The app logs inertial, orientation, and position data from the phone's internal sensors to monitor condition data. The data is then transmitted to a database to be used for research and road condition monitoring.
The North Dakota Truck-Weight Education and Outreach Program addresses concerns from state, county, city and township transportation authorities regarding damage from heavy trucks. The workshops are held at various locations throughout the state.
A campus building dedicated to transportation at NDSU would symbolically show that transportation is equal in importance to other disciplines and indicate that transportation is an accepted interdisciplinary academic field. The building would house NDSU's academic programs in transportation and logistics and provide a home for the UGPTI's research and outreach programs. The building would be a critical step forward in developing the intellectual capital necessary to plan, construct and operate the transportation systems of the 21st century.
