Problem Statement Submission
The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) undertakes applied research and technical activities focusing on the needs of transit operating agencies.  Research is conducted in all areas of public transportation, including operations, policy, planning, service configuration, engineering of vehicles and facilities, maintenance, human resources, and administration. The TCRP Oversight and Project Selection (TOPS) Committee will select the research problem statements for the FY 2018 program in the fall of 2017. To be considered for the FY 2018 program, problem submittals must arrive by June 16, 2017.

Based on feedback we have received over the past few years, this form has been greatly simplified. We now require only a few necessary fields, and the bulk of the problem statement should be uploaded as a Word document based on this outline
Provide a suggested title, in as few words as possible.
(Note:  The level of funded provided may be raised or lowered by the TCRP Oversight and Project Selection Committee if and when the problem statement is selected.)
(Note:  This estimate may be changed by the Project Panel.)
