Many transit systems have or plan to have exclusion policies that effectively ban violators from using the transit system for a period of time. There is limited information about how these policies are used and their efficacy. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, June 27, 2024 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Eastern that will discuss ways exclusion policies are implemented and used by transit agencies, the major issues and challenges of the policies, measuring effectiveness, and the impact on crime.
This webinar is based on TCRP Synthesis 173: Transit Exclusion Policies in Public Transportation Systems.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program.

TRB Webinar: Improving Data Sharing in Disaster Response with Geospatial Data and AI July 08, 2024 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 1.50 0.00

During a disaster, the lack of interoperable, shareable, analysis-ready data managed by emergency organizations limits data sharing and the creation of common reference pictures in areas and populations. Collaborative strategic decisions are then limited since they are not based on commonly agreed vulnerability indicators. Emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and geospatial technology applications can bridge these limitations by creating knowledge bases with geospatial context. TRB will host a webinar on Monday, July 8, 2024 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that will offer timely insights into transformational tools for emergency management through enhanced data interoperability and situational awareness. These tools empower stakeholders to make more informed, collaborative decisions in critical scenarios.
This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committees on Disaster Response, Emergency Evacuations, and Business Continuity, Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Computing Applications, and Geographic Information Science.
Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100.

TRB Webinar: The Evolution of Knowledge Management at Airports July 24, 2024 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.00 1.50 0.00

Industry-wide, airports are experiencing disruptive and continuous changes that include the rapid introduction of new technology, financial constraints, retirements, and the need to replace seasoned veterans. These changes are compounded by a diminishing pipeline of individuals interested in working at airports. While the term “knowledge management” is not in widespread use at airports, many are already applying techniques, such as documenting standard operating procedures or conducting after-action reviews following airport disruptions. Knowledge management (KM) is a well-established discipline for creating, capturing, sharing, and leveraging essential knowledge needed for success. Without tasking these deliberate steps, airports may face reduced efficiency, degradation of customer service, and increased vulnerability to business and operational interruptions. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, July 24, 2024 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that will provide practical approaches and solutions that any airport can use to facilitate active and continuous knowledge management.
This webinar is based on ACRP Research Report 258: The Evolution of Knowledge Management at Airports.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program.
There is no fee to attend this webinar. Registration is required.
A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.

The fixed-base operator (FBO) industry provides aeronautical services to a wide spectrum of aircraft operators at airports. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, July 25, 2024 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that will investigate how general aviation fared during the COVID-19 pandemic and how FBOs, as the principal service agents for the industry, met pandemic challenges and addressed changes that predated COVID-19. Since a 2018 review, the importance of an FBO’s market (customer and aircraft mix) has emerged.
This webinar is based on ACRP Synthesis 129: Landscape of the FBO Industry in 2022.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program.
