Consolidation of Rural Transit Systems
Date: June 21, 2018
Time: 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern
Consolidation is one way that public transportation providers can integrate their services to increase efficiency, reduce operating expenses, improve the customer experience, or achieve other goals. This presentation will share the results of research into the consolidation of rural public transportation services conducted as National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 20-65, Task 69. The purpose of Task 69 was to develop guidance that would be useful to transportation providers and state departments of transportation (DOTs) considering or engaged in consolidation efforts. The experiences of four case study systems and their state DOTs will be discussed to identify common catalysts for consolidation, steps in the consolidation process, benefits that may be achieved, and challenges that rural public transportation providers may encounter as they work to consolidate their services. Advice to state DOTs and providers from those involved in the case study consolidations will also be presented.
