NTI Webinar: Current Trends in Multiagency Transit Electronic Fare Systems
 View Description 
Electronic fare payment systems have had a transformative impact on transit services in the United States, enabling better data collection, integrated fare solutions, customer conveniences, and other advantages over the transit token or ticket that they replaced. Newer, Multiagency Electronic Fare Payment Systems (EFPS), adopted by groups of transit operators supporting multiple modes, provide customers with common payment instruments such as smartcards that can be used across a region and on services offered by different providers. Even more recently, emerging fare payment technologies using mobile devices and third-party contactless media are gaining acceptance. Although the current fare systems make travel easier and more convenient, they are complex and can be challenging to implement. This webinar describes the research on two TCRP reports – TCRP Synthesis 125 on Multiagency Electronic Fare Payment Systems and TCRP Report 177 Preliminary Strategic Analysis of Next Generation Fare Payment Systems for Public Transportation. Presenters for this session are Polly Okunieff and Michael Dinning.
May 11, 2017 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. ET 
TRB Webinar: Planning for Millennials: What Do They Want and How Do Agencies Prepare?

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, May 11, 2017, from 2:00PM to 4:00PM ET about research projects conducted in different US states that investigate millennials' travel behavior, preferences and needs, and strategies for engaging millennials in transportation projects. The presenters will share their research findings, discuss how states can use these findings to guide transportation planning decisions, and provide suggestions for additional research and collaboration.
May 11, 2017 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET 
NHI Course: Pedestrian Facility Design
 View Description 
To emphasize the importance of planning for pedestrians, the course focuses on case examples involving corridor and intersection design issues. Participants are engaged through lecture, discussion, video demonstrations of problem areas in corridors and intersections, small group problem identification, and the development of design alternatives. This training was developed to provide information and application opportunities to those involved in the design of pedestrian facilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires newly constructed and altered sidewalks to be accessible and usable by people with disabilities, and accessibility improvements need to be implemented for existing facilities.
