| The two study missions scheduled for 2012 have been canceled, as a result of the FY 2012 federal appropriations bill that included transportation, which reduced FY 2012 funding for the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) to $6.5 million from the $9.7 million anticipated when the TCRP Oversight and Project Selection ( TOPS) Committee met on October 27, 2011 to select projects for FY2012. As a result. TCRP had to de-program $3.2 million to reflect the reduced funding level.
Those funding constraints, coupled with the current sensitivity regarding international travel, led to the cancellation of the two ITSP study missions that had been scheduled to be conducted in 2012. If funding again becomes available for the TCRP Internatiional Transit Studies Program, information will be posted on this website, AIf you would like to be added to the email distribution list for any future calls for nomination, please send your request to Kathryn Harrington-Hughes.
The funding issues have also resulted in the cancellation of the 2013 missions.
If you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Harrington-Hughes, Project Manager, at 443-385-0300 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
