Flow - the Newsletter of the National Center for Transit Research

"Information sharing is a vital activity of NCTR, and it is part of why we call our newsletter Flow," said Joel Volinski, Director of NCTR,

"Our mission is not only to help all traffic on our transportation system flow more smoothly, but also to allow information from our research to flow freely to all who can benefit from it", he added.

On average, NCTR faculty have presented the findings of their research more than 40 times per year at state and national transportation conferences over the past 15 years. NCTR also manages over 20 professional listservs with more than 2,000 subscribers. These listservs provide for the free flow of ideas and information among practicing professionals and developing students. "Flow is yet another example of how we are trying to share the information we generate through our research," said Volinski.
