CUTR Webcast: Strategies to Prevent, Reduce, and Mitigate Bus Collisions

Florida exceeds the national rate for rear-ended transit bus collisions, and it matches it for side impact collisions. The Center for Urban Transportation Research recently completed a study that tried to determine the causes of these types of collisions and come up with strategies to reduce them. The study was funded by the Florida Department of Transportation. CUTR examined collision data for 17 Florida transit and conducted interviews with key agency staff. While the report concluded that there is neither a smoking gun nor a silver bullet to transit bus collisions (i.e. no single cause and no single solution), it did make six recommendations and cited one best agency practice. This CUTR webinar highlights the study’s findings and recommendations. Download Handout | Download Report
