The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) was established in 1992 to provide a continuing program of applied research on transit issues. The TCRP focuses on issues significant to the transit industry, with emphasis on developing near-term research solutions to a variety of transit problems involving facilities, service concepts, operations, policy, planning, human resources, maintenance, and administrative practices. Anyone with an interest in public transportation may play a role in setting the research agenda for the program by submitting research problem statements to the Transportation Research Board (TRB) at any time. Also, problem statements are solicited annually by means of a mailing to more than 1,300 individuals representing transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, universities, and federal agencies. The final selection of research projects is the responsibility of the TCRP Oversight and Project Selection (TOPS) Committee. This 1995 annual report of progress contains the following: Introduction; How TCRP Programs Are Formulated; Research Program; Financing the Program; How the TCRP Is Organized to Administer Research Programs; Project Panels; How the Projects Are Placed Under Contract; Monitoring Research in Progress; Promoting Dissemination and Application of Research Results; Current Status; Accomplishments--Inception to Present; FY 1996 Program; Summary; Progress by Project; and TCRP Research Agency List.
