The purpose of this blog is to keep readers up-to-date on the training, research, and education efforts being conducted by the Small Urban and Rural Transit Center (SURTC). In addition, the blog endeavors to be a valuable resource for news and information pertaining to the world of small urban and rural transit. Topics covered in the blog include upcoming training, SURTC events, completed or ongoing research projects, industry news of significant events that impact small urban and rural transit, and anything else we would like to share with you.
