TRB Webinar: Establishing a Coordinated Local Family Assistance Program for Airports September 26, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.50 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Research Report 171: Establishing a Coordinated Local Family Assistance Program for Airports.

The research provides guidance to airport personnel when assisting victims and families affected by an aviation disaster and other hazards. Airports have a vital role in assisting affected passengers, families, and friends. This is true especially if airline staff is limited and incident response “go-teams” are many hours away, or the event doesn’t involve an airline. This webinar will explain airport disaster family assistance processes, timelines, facilities, roles, and responsibilities with the focus on the research report’s toolkit. The presenters will discuss ready-to-use templates, exercise materials, and other resources to develop an effective family assistance program for airports of any size. This webinar will also present two case studies of airports that used the guidebook to improve their family assistance program. These case studies will also show airports at different stages of the development process.

TRB Webinar: Practices in Rural Regional Mobility: Case Studies and Lessons Learned September 27, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 0.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, September 27, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Research Report 861: Best Practices in Rural Regional Mobility. The research explores the role of state transit program policies and regional planning agencies in the development of services that fall in the middle ground between intercity bus service and rural public transportation, also known as rural regional services. Transit providers in rural areas are facing increasing calls to link rural areas with services outside their immediate service area. Those who cannot access a private vehicle may need rural regional services to access medical services, employment, shopping, and connections to other modes of transportation.

This webinar will present case studies that exemplify different models for providing rural regional transit services. These case studies illustrate a variety of organizational models, markets served, and funding strategies. They also show successful models and issues in different contexts, including different state transit program policies, population characteristics, and target populations. The presenters will discuss the lessons learned from these case studies in order to provide a checklist for those local transit providers, regional planners, and state transit program managers seeking to identify rural regional mobility needs and develop services in response to those needs.
