Transportation Glossary

SURCOM has drawn information from many glossaries that already exist in the transit industry and combined them into a comprehensive resource designed to be an exhaustive list of terms for the transportation industry. The glossary is a compendium of transit funding resources, performance measures and accounting principles that will serve as a guide and resource for transit professionals. It provides broad explanations and examples of how the terms are used and applied in the transit industry. In addition to terminology and bench marks used in transit management, the glossary includes information on a wide variety of federal and state transit programs and initiatives. Original sources are referenced so users can find additional information.
