Assessment of Immediate Small and Rural Transit Training Needs

The National Transit Institute (NTI) contracted with the Small Urban and Rural Transit Center (SURTC) located within the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) at North Dakota State University (NDSU) to complete a survey to assess the immediate training needs of rural and small urban transit agencies. The immediate training needs were based on the already existing NTI courses that could be adapted to meet the needs of rural and small urban agencies. Objectives of the project were to (1) develop a survey tool in consultation with NTI for small urban and rural transit agencies to determine which existing NTI course offerings will meet their particular training needs, (2) administer the survey to Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5311 recipients in rural areas with populations of less than 50,000 and to FTA Section 5307 recipients in small urban areas with populations under 200,000, and (3) analyze the survey results and prepare a final report.
