The purpose of this project is to share knowledge about transit policies and innovations in urban, suburban and rural areas throughout the regions covered by the Great Cities University Consortium. This is a group of universites located in the large cities of the United States that emphasize urban realted problems and issues. This project places an emphasis on case studies describing transit innovations that set benchmarks for other transit systems to emulate.
Case studies can be submitted for inclusion on the web page. Case studies should follow a specific outline that emphasizes the factors that led to the successful implementation of the technology. This would include a description of the innovation, a user assessment, a technology assessment, project statues and a list of contacts. A specific outline of the case study, some examples and a general description of the principles of benchmarking and technology transfer are given below:
