Transportation finance for the 21st century : proceedings of a conference : Dallas, Texas, April 23-25, 1997 by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conference was organized as a national forum to provide information on new approaches to financing all modes of transportation, to share success stories, and to stimulate discussion on the merits and drawbacks of new techniques, which are known collectively as innovative finance. Innovative finance in transportation is a diversified set of public- and private-sector actions that move beyond the traditional federal-aid and state-aid funding processes. Nearly 500 federal, state, and local government officials and private-sector representatives attended the conference. Conference participants grappled with the growing inadequacy of traditional funding sources and how to find new means to finance the continued maintenance and improvement of the nation's transportation infrastructure
Railroad freight transportation research needs : proceedings of a conference, Bethesda, Maryland, July 12-14, 1993 by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of this conference was to identify railroad freight transportation research needs, opportunities, and priorities--for both the public and private sectors--during the next 10 to 15 years. Four major recurring themes emerged during the conference: customer focus, appropriate use of information, integration among train system components and between technology and people, and the need for cooperation at many different levels--public-private, industry-suppliers, management-labor, and domestic-international. Guided by these themes, conference participants focused on research needs in four major categories: infrastructure, including track, vehicles, and track-train dynamics; command, control, communication, and information systems; service management; and energy and environment. Safety was identified as a critical topic and considered as an element of each major category

Review of rail transport research needs by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a follow-up of a TRB 1975 study on rail transport research needs. The review was to determine whether research was still needed, whether priorities had changed and whether any new research needs had arisen. The report includes summary statements on the recommended research agenda by AAR, FRA Office of Research and Development, and FRA Office of Policy and Program Development. A restructured agenda shows most priorities unchanged except that energy systems, service quality, accounting methods, terminal management and railroad costs have all been advanced to higher status. New priorities reflect a greater appreciation of increased track deterioration caused by heavier wheel loads, the impact of the energy crisis, the need for improved costing to increase profitability, and recognition that opportunities for increased traffic depend largely on better service for shippers
Rail-highway crossing safety action plan support proposals by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Action Plan presents a multi-faceted, multi-modal approach for improving safety at our nation's highway-rail crossings and for the prevention of trespassing on the rights-of-way of our nation's railroads. It is multi-faceted in that it presents enforcement, engineering, education, research, promotional and legislative initiatives addressing crossings of both light and conventional rail rights-of-way by public and private streets and highways. The objectives were to reduce the number of highway-rail crossing accidents and casualties while not impeding, but facilitating, the contribution potential of the highway and rail infrastructure on the nation's economy

In the 20th century, the United States built highway and aviation networks that transformed the country fueling unprecedented economic expansion, fostering new communities and connecting cities, towns and regions. Strong public-sector leadership along with private industry partnerships were the lynchpins to that success. States forged the path by identifying the needs and investing in key portions of the system, private industry brought innovation and resources, and the Federal Government provided an integrating vision, the policy roadmap and a funding framework that enabled the realization of a national system
