STAKEHOLDER PERSPECTIVE (BREAKOUT SESSION)

The stakeholder breakout session included representatives from groups interested in energy efficiency, environmental impact and externalities, alternative modes such as bicycling and walking, railroad passengers, community design, and the social implications of transportation investments. The group started off on a positive note, listing some success stories in which transportation research and development (R&D) advanced the interests of stakeholders. The group spent the remaining time discussing gaps in federal transportation R&D of interest to stakeholders. The stakeholder group reached three conclusions: (1) Stakeholders were underrepresented at the forum; (2) The taxonomy and framework proposed in the draft Strategic Implementation Plan (in the Appendix to these proceedings) focuses heavily on technology-based solutions that favor supply-side over demand-side solutions; and (3) Research is extremely underfunded, particularly research on environmental, performance, equity, accessibility, and transport policy development issues.
