On-Demand Presentations

NCTR is pleased to present our commitment to on-demand multimedia presentations of research and topics of interest to the public transportation community.

The benefits of this presentation broadcasting approach to the transportation profession include:

  • Saves time by getting an overview of the research prior to deciding when to read the full report
  • Brings research results to new audiences by exposing staff who may not travel to the conference or meeting to hear the presentation
  • Helps bring new employees up to speed on particular topics
  • Eliminates the time and cost spent traveling to and from conferences
  • Captures the researcher's knowledge by viewing after the presentation ends
