Propose New Topics for the 2021 TCRP Synthesis Program: Submissions due March 19

TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) is seeking potential synthesis study topics for the 2021 TCRP Synthesis Program.

TCRP will fund seven (7) new synthesis topics. Anyone may propose topics.

A synthesis study documents current practice and experience for specific public transportation topics.  The following factors are considered in the selection process for new topics.

  • The objective of the scope of work is to document current practices in public transportation and/or public transit agencies
  • The synthesis documents current practice, not best practice; it is not a research project or a guidebook
  • The topic addresses an area of practice that is widespread and of general interest to public transit and/ or public transportation
  • The topic should be timely and critical for expediting delivery, improving the quality, or lowering the cost of programs

A newSynthesis Topic Outline offers guidance in creating a topic. Topics must be submitted through the TCRP Synthesis Topic Submission Portal by March 19, 2021.
