TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 197: Tools for a Sustainable Transit Agency.

This research explores the development of two tools for improving sustainability at transit agencies, the Sustainability Routemap and the S+ROI Calculator, which address transit sustainability through simplifying, translating, and implementing existing knowledge in new ways. These tools, available through downloading a .zip file, may help agencies create a successful sustainability program by developing performance measures, obtaining buy-in from leadership and staff, or applying a combination of methods.  The presenters will describe the tools so that audience members are comfortable using them at their agencies.
