UC Davis Transit Research Symposium

The newly-launched UC Davis Transit Research Center is hosting a Transit Research Symposium on May 25 at The UC Davis International Center!

This event will showcase research underway at UC Davis exploring how transit agencies are adopting emerging technologies, the relationship between public transit and shared-use mobility, how COVID-19 has affected transit use and transit agencies, and how land use and other factors contribute to transit use.

The inaugural Transit Research Symposium will advance the dialogue between the UC Davis Transit Research Center public transit stakeholders, practitioners, policy makers, and others. And, by highlighting key policy relevant research outcomes and connecting researchers with policy makers, this event will help inform future work of the growing Transit Research Center.

This study was made possible with funding received by the University of California Institute of Transportation Studies from the State of California through the Public Transportation Account and the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (Senate Bill 1). This document is disseminated under the sponsorship of the State of California in the interest of information exchange and does not necessarily reflect the official views or policies of the State of California.

Community Bus Stop Improvement Survey

Civic Thread is partnering with Sacramento Regional Transit (SacRT) to develop a Bus Stop Improvement Plan, which will create a list of necessary and desired improvements to bus stops, amenities, and sidewalks in the SacRT system. We need your opinions and feedback to identify priority bus stop needs. Please share your thoughts about your bus stop priorities to help ensure that this planning process is led by community. This survey will also help us identify areas of concern to hold community walking tours. By taking this survey, you have the chance to be entered to receive a free month of transit on the SacRT system (includes bus service, light rail, and SmaRT Ride).

All questions are optional. The survey will take approximately 3-5 minutes.
