The Rural Transit Fact Book serves as a national resource for statistics and information on rural transit in America. This publication includes rural demographic and travel behavior data as well as financial and operating statistics for agencies receiving section 5311 funding. In addition to national-level...

 

Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) have the potential to offer benefits and flexibility in travel, which can lead to significant reductions in the generalized travel cost and possibly, more demand. The combination of the AV technology with Mobility as a Service (MaaS) creates a new disruptive transportation mode...

 

The emergence of a new mode, mobility as a service (MaaS), has, to date, been most often characterized as the ride-hailing mode provided by companies such as Uber and Lyft. This study focuses on MaaS as a transit access mode. This mode is also referred to as microtransit. For this research, we describe...

 

A mechanical bar splice, also known as bar coupler, is an alternative to the traditional lap splicing to connect bars in reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Even though mechanical bar splices can be used as new precast column connections to accelerate bridge construction (ABC), the use of bar couplers...

 

Over the last two decades many researchers have focused on providing new ideas and frameworks that can help improve conventional bridge inspection practices; however, little guidance is provided for implementing these new ideas in practice. This, along with resistance to change and complexity of the...

 

Older adults, people with disabilities, individuals in low-income households, and those living in rural areas can face significant mobility challenges. This study examines travel behavior and mobility of these transportation-disadvantaged groups, including trip rates, miles driven, mode shares, and other...

 

The recent rapid development of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has made collecting images of bridge conditions trivial. Measuring a defect's extent, growth, and location from the collected large image set, however, can be cumbersome. This paper proposes a streamlined bridge inspection system...

 

The objective of this report is to provide a benchmark for elevator managers in assessing performance and supply a source for recognizing trends in the characteristics of North Dakota elevators. This report and the statistics mailed to individual elevators are presented as a source of information for...

 

Railroad accidents can cause economic harm that extends far beyond their own financial losses. As one of the most efficient modes of long-distance freight transportation, losses in line capacity and cargo due to accidents can disrupt the supply chain and lead to commodity shortages everywhere. Therefore...

 

This research seeks to develop an infrastructure safety support system by embedding V2I enabled sensor networks into the transportation infrastructure to provide autonomous vehicles and human drivers with inputs to improve their decision making when obvious decisions may not possible. A new car-following...
