A Guide for Implementing Bus on Shoulder (BOS) Systems
Report Number: R-151
This report provides guidelines for the planning, design, and implementation of BOS operations along urban freeways and major arterials. The project that developed TCRP Report 151 also produced a PowerPoint presentation that describes the process that was used to develop the report on the TRB website at www.trb.org.

A Guide for Planning and Operating Flexible Public Transportation Services
Report Number: R-140
This report explores the types of flexible transportation service strategies that are potentially appropriate for small, medium, and large urban and rural transit agencies. It also examines financial and political realities, operational issues, and institutional mechanisms related to implementing and sustaining flexible transportation services.
A Guidebook for Developing a Transit Performance-Measurement System
A Guidebook for Developing a Transit Performance-Measurement System
Report Number: R-088
This guidebook will assist transit system managers in developing a performance-measurement system or program that uses traditional and non-traditional performance measures to address customer and community issues.  The measures presented in the book will also be of interest to metorpolitan planning organizations interested in assessing the community benefits provided by transit service.

A Guidebook for the Evaluation of Project Delivery Methods
Report Number: R-131
This report examines various project delivery methods for major transit capital projects.  The report also explores the impacts, advantages, and disadvantages of including operations and maintenance as a component of a contract for a project delivery method.
A New Vision of Mobility:  Guidance to Foster Collaborative Multimodal Decision Making
A New Vision of Mobility: Guidance to Foster Collaborative Multimodal Decision Making
Report Number: RRD-065
This digest summarizes the results of Phase I of a cooperative research effort jointly funded by TCRP Project H-29 and NCHRP Project 8-45 titled "A New Vision of Mobility:  Guidance to Foster Collaborative Multimodal Decision Making."  This research effort will produce two products: (1) a short document for popular distribution serving as a guidance resource in a "handbook" format and (2) a "compendium" of case examples upon which the guidance document is based.
A Summary of TCRP Report 88: A Guidebook for Developing a Transit Performance-Measurement System
A Summary of TCRP Report 88: A Guidebook for Developing a Transit Performance-Measurement System
Report Number: RRD-056
This digest provides senior transit mangers with an easy-to-read summary of the contents of and tools in TCRP Report 88: A Guidebook for Developing a Transit Performance-Measurement System.  The guidebook provides a step-by-step process for developing a performance-measurement program that includes both traditional and non-traditional performance indicators that addresses customer-oriented and community issues.  It is intended to introduce agency staff and decision-makers to the key performance-measurement concepts described in the guidebook.  Information on obtaining the guidebook is on page 25.
A Toolkit for Self-Service, Barrier-Free Fare Collection
A Toolkit for Self-Service, Barrier-Free Fare Collection
Report Number: R-080
A significant number of rail transit operators are not or will be looking to adopt lower-cost, less-infrastructure-intensive ways to carry out certain system functions such as fare collection.  This report addresses the full range of issues and parameters that an agency must consider in determining the applicability of self-service fare collection (SSFC) systems, including those related to policy and enforcement issues, operational issues, and capital and equipment issues. The Toolkit is designed for use by agencies at various points in the fare collection decision process.
Analyzing the Effectiveness of Commuter Benefits Programs
Analyzing the Effectiveness of Commuter Benefits Programs
Report Number: R-107
This report is designed to help employers, transit agencies, and other organizations that promote transit benefits, and policy makers better understand the impacts of a transit benefits program and how to qualify these impacts for their own programs.  The report has three chapters: Chapter 1 provides an overview of commuter benefits and a discussion of the study objective and the organization of the report. Chapter 2 provides guidance on how to evaluate the effectiveness of a transit benefits program. Chapter 3 based on research from metropolitan areas across the United States, examines the effects of transit benefits programs on employee travel behavior and on transit agency ridership, revenues, and costs.
Assessment of Hybrid-Electric Transit Bus Technology
Assessment of Hybrid-Electric Transit Bus Technology
Report Number: R-132
This report explores decision-making guidelines coupled with a comprehensive life cycle cost (LCC) model designed to assist transit managers in evaluating, selecting, and implementing hybrid-electric technology options for transit buses. The LCC model allows the user to compare the total life cycle costs across several cost categories for up to 6 different purchase scenarios. The LCC model is contained on the accompanying CD-ROM (CRP-CD-71), with the printed version of the report and available for download as an ISO image online.
Automatic Data Collection on Transit Users Via Radio Frequency Identification
Automatic Data Collection on Transit Users Via Radio Frequency Identification
Report Number: IDEA-10
A prototype radio frequency identification (RF/ID) tag system was designed and tested. Hardware and software were designed for an RF/ID tag system for automatic data collection on transit user movements. Work on Stage 1 involved assessing the RF/ID design for applicability to transit systems. Transit operator configuration requirements were evaluated, software and database requirements were reviewed, a preliminary system design configuration was established, and a representative bus route was selected. In Stage 2, system hardware and software specifications were developed, and a prototype RF/ID system for collecting, storing, and translating transit data was designed and built. The University of Virginia Transportation Services (UTS), which serves the student and staff population at UVA, participated in the project. In Stage 3, trial testing of RF/ID system using the Hereford College Dormitory-Hospital Complex route in the UTS system was performed and system performance and operational viability were ascertained. Potential coupling of RF/ID data collection with AVL systems was examined.
