Again, due to the nature of the literature and the difficulty i n obtaining some reports/articles, project staff are still reviewing the literature obtained and putting together a draft literature review. The potential case study sites have been narrowed down from 10 to 5 cities. A final decision regarding which cities will be selected should occur during the upcoming quarter once the survey of transit properties is complete and additional personal contact is made with the cities regarding their ability to participate in the case studies. As noted i n the las t quarterly progress report, three (3) case study sites will be utilized. A written survey to be distributed to transit properties throughout the U.S. is currently being finalized. The fina l survey instrume nt will be mailed during the upcoming quarter 1 7

Contacts were made to Frank Cihak, Communication Director for the American Public Transit Association, and Jean Laderosa of Chatham County Area Transrt in Savannah, Georgia, in an attempt to get copies of all winning promot ional pieces and campaign literatu re. After weeks of inquiry and cooperation from APTA, a zip disk containing digitized images of winning p ieces was forwarded to the Clearinghouse. The AdWheel page was posted on February 10 with winning materials that had already been forwarded to the Clearinghouse by the sponsoring agency. We are continuing to work with the files forwarded by APT A. In the meantime we have created a link to APT A's Web site where they h ave posted some images of the 1997 AdWheel winners. The Clearinghouse will augment this Information by providing more comprehensive i nformatio n about each winning campaign. Updating the entire Clearinghouse site is an ongoing project. In early February, a routine lette r was sent to transit systems nationwide soliciting updated promotional material. Transit systems responded quickly and favorably and thank you letters were sent to each participa ting system. As a result, new pages and information have been added to the following Clearinghouse features: Annual Reports Marketing Campaigns, Employer Marketing Niche Marketing, and Ride Share. Additional pages are currently under development for Bikes on Bus, Advertising, Ride Guides, and Routes & Schedules. There is a delay in adding these pages due to the Marketing Institute switching servers. The Clearinghouse has also provided materials via mail to the Detroit Department of Transportation to assist the m in their efforts of developing promotional material. Future projects i nclude development of new categories such as Collateral Pieces, Coloring Books, Guaranteed Ride-Home, Newsletters, Tours, & Promotions. 22

A collaborative request for additional funds ($25,000) to carry out the conference was submitted to FTA and was given verbal approval in November Delays at FTA have pushed execution of a contract into the second quarter of 1998 for these funds A preliminary planning meeting with several participants i n the First Nat ional Conference on GIS and Transit, held in August 1995 (NUTI Year Two Project) and others identified as active on the cutting edge of transit GIS applications, was held in association with the annual TRB Meeting in January 1998 From this meeting a planning committee has been established that includes 28 members from federal. state and loca l government, transit agencies. the academic community, consuHing firms and software vendors. The planning committee will not meet formally but rather conduct its business by telephone, fax, and e-mail communication A questionnaire has been sent to the committee members to help in the development of the conference agenda Solicitations are being made to various professional and trade organizations to co-sponsor the event in addition to the major sponsors RSPA and FTA November 1-4, 1998 are the selected conference dates. These dates were cihosen to avoid confl ict with other transit industry and GIS technology meetings, and to take advantage of off-season travel rates. CUTR faculty have solicited proposals from Tampa hote ls and selected the new Embassy Suites Hotel on the USF campus as the conference site. Room rates and facility rental charges were substantially lower than at the other hotel proposing for the selected dates. The campus location offers the advantage of proximity to CUTR and other USF laboratory and classroom spaoe I f needed for workshops and small group meetings 28

The l isting of resources includes : bibliographies : firms, centers, age n cies and i ndividuals ; Internet sites: typology for publi c transportation and welfare to work" research Contact has been made w ith a number of Individuals in the state and nationally who are interested i n public transportation and this area of research. Identification of areas for additional research and priorities co ntinues. The focus of much of the ongoing research continues to focus o n "spatial mismatch" or the geograph i c isolation of former welfare recipients from sustainable employment ch i ldcare, and other s u pport services There seems to be a need tor nationa l replication of either the Case Western Center o n Urban Poverty and Social Change or the Emory University study on moving people from welfare to work The Volpe Service Assessment Division studied the Hartford (Connecticut) metropolitan planning agency's efforts to plan transportation services connecting welfare recipients and other low income residents to jobs. The study assessed technical and institutional factors, current practices and expected improvements, and creative ideas on how the planning process might contribute to improved access to jobs. Similar case studies by t h e Volpe Center are being conducted i n St. Loui s and Detroff. Assessment of i nterests of NUTI member faculty continues. The inffial research team strategies include: Development of a statewide GIS analysis of access to publ ic transportation tor persons transitioning from welfare to work; Assessment of availability of childcare v i a public transportation ; Assessment of trave l behavior of persons transitioning from welfare to work D i scussions continue with Dr Wright at FAMU regarding completion of welfare-to-work' research scope for project year 1998. Also, contacts were made by telephone to discuss research findings and needs Coordination continues with welfare to work elements in other NUTI projects including: Propose a "we l fare-to-work session or program track tor the NUTI GIS conference: Identify we l fare-to-work" research findings appropriate tor publication in the Journal of Public Transportation. If warranted, recommend a special"wellare-to-work issue. The visits to Florida J ob and Enterprise Partnership (JEP) Regions continue Base maps have been created, in conjunction wffh other projects of the JEP regions. A draft proposal tor future NUTI work is being developed that i ncorporates some of the research needs discussed earlier. Partic i pation i n n ational forums and conferences continues.

ANNUAL PLAN ACTIVITIES STATUS INTRODUCTION This section reports lhe status of the Institute in atta i ning the goals and objectives establ i shed for the Institute s performance Thus, the organization of this sectio n is structured around the organization of the goals and objectives for the lnslitu te. The i nformatio n presented varies depending on the specific goal and objective. In some i nstances the information is substantial and detailed and in other instances it i s limited and q u al i tative. In some cases the informatio n provided is cross referenced to specific research projects and in other cases presented in an aggregate fashion. Following the summary l ist of goals and objectives each goal, objective and an action item is add r esse d. This section of the report builds on the prior quarters' reports Much of the information remains unchange d ; however, the tables are updated quarterly to i ncorporate new i nformation GoALS AND 0BJEC11VES ;Zgall: Research Program Objective 1.1: Utilize a project proposal solicitation and review process Goal II: Research Prog@m Perfonnance Objective 11.1: I nsure relevance of the research effort Objective 11.2: Monitor the progress of each research effort Ob j ective 11.3: Produce research results appropria t e for th e target audiences Goal !II: Technotoqv Transfe[ Objective 111. 1 : Develop a techno l ogy transfer p l an for each project Objective 111.2: Monitor technology transfer efforts at the project level Objective 111.3: Develop and produce a Journal of Pub li c Transportation Research Goal IV: Objective IV. 1 : Have each project enhance tra n sportation education Goal V : Human Resources Objective V.1: Address the element of human resources in each i ndividual project Objective V.2: Monitor human resources efforts at the project level PERFORMANCE ON GOALS, OBJECTIVES AND ACTION ITEMS Goal! -Research Program: Use an objective process for selecting research activities that are responsive to the vision, mission and theme. 33


ANNUAL PLAN ACTIVITIES STATUS Objective 1.1: Utilize a proje<;t proposal solicitation and review process to insure projects responsive to the Institute goals. The solicitation process for research proje<;ts for NUTI has evolved over the past five years The materials below describe the proposal submission and selection process put in place during the first year of NUTI and used to select projects for the subSequent years. The single most significant modification between years involved changes In the review committee composition for the selection of candidate projects. Action Item 1.1.a: Disseminate a schedule for soliciting, receiving, reviewing, and modifying proposals for i nclusi on in the annual work program. Development of the work program for summerlfall19gs will await !he completion of the reauthorization of federal transportation legislation When issues of funding levels, match requirements etc., are resolved we will promptly prepare a grant request and subsequently a work program for the use of FY98 funds It is anticipated that the process will be similar to other years, however, we may modify the process for one year in order to speed up the process to make up for delays. Additionally, we will revisit the research priorities and resource allocation to respond to any new initiatives and program goals that may be disseminated The solicitation of proposals for the year five work plan was distributed in March 1997. Prior year packages were also distributed i n the spring of the year. These packages laid out the schedule and process for submitting, evaluating, and selecting proposals. Sections of that solicitation package are included below. Work Program Development Assumptions: The format for the Annual Plan will be as specified by RSPA in their 1995 guidance. T he general allocation of funds between the will not be altered unless someone indicates a desire to do less research in the subsequent year or prior research was unsatisfactory The coordination of the process at the consortium schools will be handled by the program coordinators at each school. Resources associated with the subsequent year Annual Plan development and reviews are the responsibility of the proposers/participants. No resources are budgeted specifically for Annual Plan development. The proposal review process is prescribed in a manner that is consistent with established goals and objectives that reference process characteristics designed to ensure high qualify, useful research The schedule calls for the Annual Plan to be approved by RSPA in order that contracts can be in place by late summer each year 34


ANNUAL PLAN ACTIVITIES STATUS The match requirements require each institution to cover t heir match ($1 match to $4 federal) in proportion to federal funds directed to that U nivers ity There is no preconceived notion as to what projects or PI's will be funded in subsequent years. It is anticipated that some projects may merit subsequent year work; however, it is also a ntic ipated that several new projects will be selected. General Work Program Development Process and Schedule : Fi nalize proposal Fonnat: Early Spring, 199_ A draft proposal fonnat is provided to candidate Pis that reflects the guidance provided by RSPA and detailed by CUTR. The format is env isioned to be used for initial proposals by candidate PI's as well as for the actual Annual Plan submitted to RSPA. Project Abstracts will be l i mited to six pages Subsequently, when the work plan is approved more detailed Project Descriptions" may be required byRSPA Draft Project Abs!racts Due: Mid-Spring, 199_ Draft project abstracts from candidate PI's are due to the program coordinators at each school by the specified date. Team leaders at each inst itution have respons ib i lity for soliciting proposa ls from possible faculty PI's. The target is approximately two times more proposals tha n will ultimately be funded. Copies will be mailed to the reviewers for review Proposal Review: Late Spring/S u mmer 199_ Reviewers will be scheduled to meet at USF to select projects for inclusion i n the annual plan. Necessary proposal and budget modifications will be communicated to investigators and finalized project abstracts will be due to CUTR for inclusion i n the Annual Plan. Work Plan Sybmjssion to RSPA: Summer 199_ Action Item 1.1.b: Provide a project proposal format that includes appropriate information to enable an evaluation of how the proposed effort would address attainment of the research program goals The proposal solicitation packages include the following: 1) Instructions for Completing Project Abstracts for the NUT! Annual Plan ; 2) Project Abstract Format, 3) NUT! Annual Work Plan Draft Abstract Budget Worksheet, and 4) Electronic version of project format. Action Item 1.1.c: Establish a proposal review team with an appropriate range of expertise to participate In proposa l review. 35


ANNUAL PLAN ACTMTIES STATUS The review committee for draft abstracts consisted of the following persons: CUTR: FSU: FlU: FAMU : Transit Industry: Steven E Polzin, Gary L. Brosch William Mustard David Shen Charles Wright Jay Goodwill, Executive Director, Sarasota County Area Roger Sweeney Executive D i rector, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority FOOT Representative: Ed Colby, Executive D i rector MOTA, Dade County (Miam i) Marion Hart Director FOOT Public Office USDOT Representatives: Chuck Morison, FTA For Year Five projects the team perfonned very effectively in reviewing the proposals and offered a broad and informed perspective of industry needs as well as ongoing i ndustry research. Each of the committee members was provided a package of p r oposals for rev iew. I n some cases the members also involved staff in reviews of some proposals. The reviewers not only made project selections but also made recommendations on scope, methodology, budget etc. for final abstracts In general there was approximately two to three times as much work proposed as funds available in year five anticipated tha t funding obligations will be made tor r eseanch projects not part of the original These projects will be to use rollover fund balances T he NUT! Director will work informally with member of the review committee and perhaps others to identify projects that are complementary t o the overall program goals and consistent with the resea rch priorities as ind icated by the selection committee. Action Item 1.1.d: Establish proposal evaluation that cover the range of considerations as identified in the theme and goals tor the Institute. The following criteria and instructions are provided to both the proposers and the selection committee. Criteria that PI s should keep in mind when designing their research and writing the abstracts indude the following factors derived from the institute goals and objectives. These criteria should be addressed In the context of the prescribed format for project abstracts. 1. Project Significance I ncluding relevance/relationship lo established research priorities, targeted audiences (state and national), and potential tor service quality, cost, or other impacts, etc. Reseanch Quality. Evidence that the work is not duplicative, is methodologically sound and includes appropriate actions to ensure robustness (i.e., peer review review, etc.). Evidence of i nnovative and creative methodologies and consideration of innovative solutions 3. Soundness of Proposal-Evidence that the proposal staffing plan. and schedule are sound Evidence that the proposal is logical and well written. 36


ANNUAL PLAN ACTIVITIES STATUS 4. Opportunity and Plan for Technology Transfer and Educabonal EnhancementThe extent to which the project supports and involves students and multi disciplinary faculties. The opportunibes for the products to be of value in transportation education, including continuing education of industry personnel, etc. The extent to which the project is conducive to and incorporates techno logy tra nsfer elements. 5. Human Resource Contribution Evidence that the proposal will support a diverse staff and contribute to human resource goals of the Inst itutes program. 6. Invo lvement of peer review acbvities to ensure research quality. 7. Research quality of prior NUT! worll carried out by the PI and research team. Eva lua tio n forms are provided to the reviewers but not required to be used. The actual selection involves a ranking process where reviewers rank desirable projects, then discuss scope and budget changes to arrive at a package of proposals that match the available budget amount In general, the selection committee put the greatest weight on the perceived relevance of the worll to the industry. We anticipate future selections to put emphasis on the success of earlier projects by proposers who have been involved in prior NUTI funded work and on i ndustry relevance i n an era of extremely limned resources. Action Hem 1.1.e: Monrtor and revise the project selection process on an annual basis to reflect experience in the prior yeats proposal selection process Based on the success of years two through five selections, we anticipate that future years' selection processes will be similar. We may change the committee composition to involve additional persons or new perspectives. It is anticipated that some resources will be reserved for the directors discretion in order to be responsive to rapidly changing industry research interests and technology transfer needs. Goal!! Research Program Performance; Cond uct research activities, the products of which are j udged by experts in the field to advance the body of knowledge in urban transportation. Objective 11.1: Insure relevance of the research effort by involving industry, peer researchers, and pol icy makers in review of research project work through an advisory committee or other forum as appropriate. Action Item 11.1.a: Establish a forum for peer input on each research project. Proposal development i nstructio ns included an explicrt mandate to conduct and document peer rev iew activities. Table series 1 indicates peer reviewers for projects. Table 1-5 covers Year Five projects and similar tables in eartier Annual Reports covered activibes for prior year studies. Project abstracts for year five projects also requested information on peer review activities. In some Instances the approach to and participants in peer review are best defined later I n the development of the project 37

ANNUAL PLAN ACTIVITIES STATUS Objective 11. 2 : Monitor the progress of each research effort. Action Item 11.2. a: Monttor progress by complying with the contract reporting requirements and taking corrective actions where progress is not consistent wtth the work plan. NUTI has completed the required progress reporting activities The mechanism for collecting Information and the format for reporting progress has evolved during the past several quarters in response to feedback and experience i n preparing the progress reports. Changes have incl uded modifying the reporting format to include both estimated and "actua r spending to reflect the facts that there are significant lags between when expenses occur and when they are officially posted to the account. We have also modified the Operational Report to focus on goal and objective attainment Objective 11. 3 : Produce outstanding research results that effectively communicate the findings in a manner appropriate for the various audiences that might benefit from such information. Action Item 11.3. a: Develop gu i delines for Institute documents that facilitate quality products (style guidelines) NUTI has developed guidelines for technical documents produced by the National Urban Transit I nstitute. The instructions were included i n the First Annual Report. T hey provide d i rection to ensur e compliance with RSPA guidance a n d will provide some degree of oommonaltty of report formats More detailed specifica tion was avoided to enable each PI to utilize the software and style characteristics that they are most familiar with. The tech n ical reports also share the standardized NUTI cover NUTI has not specified format for other types of products as these are best designed to meet the individual needs of the target audience Action Item 11. 3.b: Establish and i mplement a procedure for product review to i nsure qua l ity products. Projects involve product review activities as designed and determined by the individual principal investigators. Table series 2 shows planned review activtties for the respective years. Goal IllTechnology Transfer: Make research results available to potentia l users in a form that can be directly i mplemented utilized or otherwise applied Objective 111.1: Include in each research project proposal and work plan an element that addresses how technology transfer will occur for the project 46
