Hello all TRB health and Transportation Subcommittee Friends,
The National Cooperative Highway Research Program is sponsoring development of a Guide for
Public Transportation Pandemic Planning and Response, with small and rural transit
agencies as the primary target audience. The project team is conducting a survey of
transit agencies, state DOTs, emergency managers and public health officers to identify
and distill best practices. The survey is also intended to identify potential candidates
for follow-on interviews.
We believe that you are a key part of our target audience for the survey. Are you
interested in Pandemic Planning (especially for small & rural transit agencies)? Do
you have best practices, lessons or contacts to share? If so please take the short
(no more than 15minutes) & check out the blog 'Planning Transportation for
There you can also discover the great resources and links that we have already aggregated
through the research for this project. For example, the site has best practice pandemic
plans listed by state, along with descriptions of those plans and hyperlinks to the
documents. It also has a list of state transportation and public health organizations'
social media accounts and much more.
The survey is scheduled to close November 30, 2012, so please check it out, post it and/or
forward it right away. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you in advance for your participation!
