The central theme for the symposium is “translating transit research into practice.” As the transit industry is poised to take advantage of the largest transit and rail investment in our lifetimes, the symposium will be a platform where transit experts share insights on how evidence-based research is being or can be used to make the most of these opportunities in a changing environment. In addition to discussions on transit research and practice in the US, a group of international speakers will be invited to share transit insights from non-US contexts. The Symposium will focus on the following topics:

  • Zero-fare transit
  • Fare collection and payment options
  • Electrification and zero emissions
  • Transit resiliency
  • Public health and transit
  • Mobility hubs and multimodal coordination
  • Strategic funding for public transit
  • Managing costs and maintenance

The Symposium will take place October 25-27, 2022 online, but attendees can come to Gainesville, Florida to the University of Florida campus for in-person site visits in Gainesville and Jacksonville as well as network with other transit researchers and professionals.

The Symposium is convened by a partnership between APTA, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), University of Florida Transportation Institute, and the T-SCORE University Transportation Center. 

*MTI is a proud co-organizer of this event.
