Compendium of Student Papers: 2003 Undergraduate Transportation Engineering Fellows Program

Steven D. Schrock, editor, Texas A&M University, August 2003, 96 pp. (473700-00003-7)

This report is a compilation of research papers written by students participating in the 2003 Undergraduate Transportation Engineering Fellows Program. The ten-week summer program, now in its twelfth year, provides undergraduate students in Civil Engineering the opportunity to learn about transportation engineering through participation in sponsored transportation research projects. The program design allows students to interact directly with a Texas A&M University faculty member or TTI researcher in developing a research proposal, conducting valid research, and documenting the research results through oral presentations and research papers.

The papers in this compendium report on the following topics, respectively: 1) improving Houston QuickRide through an investigation of former users; 2) predicted driver response to a cordon toll around Fort Myers Beach, Florida; 3) quantitative analysis of the amount and types of nighttime work in the Waco and Austin districts; and 4) assessment of delay of transit buses in arterial systems.

Keywords: Transportation Improvement Strategies, Electronic Toll Collection, Cordon Tolling, Nighttime Work Zones, Transit Delay
