TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 201: Understanding Changes in Demographics, Preferences, and Markets for Public Transportation.

This webinar will explore how changes in demographics, traveler preferences, and markets for public transportation affect transit ridership now and in the future. Presenters will discuss the role of both "hard" (travel times and costs) and "soft" (values, preferences and attitudes) attributes in the interpretation of predicted changes in the markets for public transportation. They will also identify how an individual’s demographics affect their long-term values, their current attitudes, and the type of neighborhood they choose to live in affects their likelihood to ride transit. 

This webinar is sponsored by the Transit Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
