What's driving an epidemic? The spread of syphilis along an interstate highway in rural North Carolina. (1/1018)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine whether county syphilis rates were increased along Interstate Highway 95 (I-95) in North Carolina during a recent epidemic. METHODS: Ecological data on syphilis cases demographic data, highway data, and drug activity data were used to conduct a cross-sectional and longitudinal study of North Carolina countries from 1985 to 1994. Crude and adjusted incidence rate ratios (IRRs) were determined by means of standard and longitudinal Poisson regression models adjusted for sociodemographic factors and drug use. RESULTS: Ten-year syphilis rates in I-95 counties greatly exceeded rates in non-I-95 counties (38 vs 16 cases per 100,000 persons) and remained higher after adjustment for race, age, sex, poverty, large cities, and drug activity (adjusted IRR = 2.05, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.84, 2.28). Syphilis rates were stable until 1989, when rates increased sharply in I-95 counties but remained stable in non-I-95 counties. Increased drug activity in I-95 counties preceded the rise in syphilis cases. CONCLUSIONS: A better understanding of the relationship between high-ways and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases may guide future prevention interventions.  (+info)

Exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and genotoxic effects on nonsmoking Swedish road pavement workers. (2/1018)

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to investigate exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) from asphalt fumes among Swedish road pavement workers and determine whether any effects could be detected with genotoxic tests. METHODS: The study included 28 nonsmoking road pavers and 30 nonsmoking referents. The concentration of PAH was determined in the breathing zone of the road pavers. 1-Hydroxypyrene was analyzed before and after shifts of asphalt work and during the afternoon for referents. Sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) and micronuclei (MN) were determined in peripheral lymphocytes. RESULTS: Several 3- or 4-ring PAH were found, and the analysis indicated that they occurred in bitumen fumes rather than in traffic fumes. The average total concentration of PAH was 2.3 (range 0.2-23.8) microg/m3. The concentration of 1-hydroxypyrene in urine was higher for the road pavers than for the referents, but there was no significant difference between the pre- and postshift values of the road pavers. The road pavers had no significant increase in SCE or MN. CONCLUSIONS: The study showed that Swedish road pavers have an increased exposure to PAH from bitumen fumes, but no genotoxic effects could be detected by SCE or MN tests.  (+info)

Socio-economic consequences of rheumatoid arthritis in the first years of the disease. (3/1018)

OBJECTIVE: Few data have been presented to document the impact of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on socio-economic well-being. In this study, exact figures on socio-economic consequences were assessed. METHODS: The socio-economic consequences were studied in an inception cohort (186 early RA patients, mean disease duration 3 yr) by measuring the change in work capability, income, rest during the daytime, leisure time activity, transport mobility, housing and social support occurring in the first years of the disease. RESULTS: For 89% of the patients, RA had an impact on one of the socio-economic items; for 58%, at least three of these items were affected simultaneously. Work disability appeared to be 4-15 times higher than in the general population. After 3 yr, 42% of the patients were registered as work disabled. Nearly a quarter of the patients experienced income reduction. Over 40% of the patients claimed extra rest during the daytime. Leisure activity changed towards activities with a lower joint load. There was a decline in transport mobility for 52% of the patients. Social support increased strongly. CONCLUSIONS: Socio-economic change already presents in the first years of RA and appears to be influenced by age, gender, marital status and work disability. Furthermore, physical limitation appeared to be predictive for work-related income reduction, reduced transport mobility and development of social dependency.  (+info)

Racial discrimination and alcohol-related behavior in urban transit operators: findings from the San Francisco Muni Health and Safety Study. (4/1018)

OBJECTIVE: A growing body of literature is documenting the health effects of racial discrimination. The authors investigated the association between racial discrimination and alcohol-related behavior in a sample of urban transit operators. METHODS: Using data from a 1993-1995 cross-sectional study of transit operators in San Francisco, California, the authors analyzed responses to two sets of questions about racial discrimination; the first set focused on reaction to unfair treatment and the second on arenas, or domains, of discrimination. Alcohol-related variables were: number of drinks per month, heavy drinking, alcohol dependence, and negative consequences of alcohol consumption. RESULTS: Operators who reported five or more domains of discrimination drank an average of 13.4 more drinks per month than those who reported no domains of discrimination (P = 0.01). Similarly, they were more likely to be heavy drinkers (adjusted odds ratio [OR] = 2.16; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.14, 4.09) and dependent on alcohol (adjusted OR = 2.02; 95% CI 1.08, 3.79) than operators who reported no domains of discrimination. The number of domains in which operators reported having experienced discrimination was not related to sex, age, household income, job seniority, or marital status, but varied significantly by educational level and race/ethnicity. CONCLUSIONS: Data from a sample of urban transit operators showed an association between the number of domains of discrimination and some alcohol-related outcomes, but not others.  (+info)

Transport and temperature effects on measurement of serum and plasma potassium. (5/1018)

Transport of blood samples from general practice to a central laboratory can result in spuriously high or low potassium concentrations. The importance of this phenomenon was studied in a general practice serving a population of 15,000 patients, 27 km from the pathology laboratory that routinely measured serum potassium. The design involved comparison of potassium levels between control serum (plain gel-separation serum tubes centrifuged in the surgery), routine serum (plain gel-separation tubes centrifuged in the laboratory) and routine plasma samples (lithium-heparin tubes centrifuged in the laboratory). Complete triple sets of data were obtained for 371 samples. Altman and Bland plots for the control serum vs routine serum samples showed a mean difference of +0.1 mmol/L with limits of agreement (+/- 2SD) +0.6 mmol/L, -0.4 mmol/L and for control serum vs routine plasma a mean difference of +0.2 mmol/L with limits of agreement +0.8 mmol/L, -0.4 mmol/L. There was a negative association between mean weekly routine plasma potassium levels with mean weekly temperatures achieved. Regression analysis indicated that both maximum temperature achieved and time to centrifugation significantly contributed to differences observed in the routine plasma samples, but not with the routine serum samples. For plasma samples exposed to high temperatures a clinically significant lowering of potassium concentrations can arise. These results confirm that spurious lowering of potassium concentrations occurs in plasma samples collected in a primary care setting. The preferred method is to centrifuge samples soon after venepuncture. Where this is not possible, collection into plain gel-separation tubes (serum) ensures less variation due to temperature and time to centrifugation than does collection into lithium-heparin tubes (plasma).  (+info)

Stability of plasma human immunodeficiency virus load in VACUTAINER PPT plasma preparation tubes during overnight shipment. (6/1018)

VACUTAINER PPT plasma preparation tubes were evaluated to determine the effects of various handling and shipping conditions on plasma human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) load determinations. Plasmas obtained from PPT tubes stored and shipped under nine different conditions were compared to conventional EDTA tube plasmas stored at -70 degrees C within 2 h after phlebotomy. Compared to viral loads in frozen EDTA plasma, those in PPT tube plasma that was frozen immediately and either separated or shipped in situ were not significantly different. Viral loads in PPT tube plasma after storage for 6 h at either room temperature or 4 degrees C, followed by shipment at ambient temperature or on wet or dry ice, were not significantly different from baseline viral loads in EDTA or PPT plasma. The results of this study indicate that the HIV load in PPT tube plasma is equivalent to that in standard EDTA plasma. Plasma viral load is not affected by storage or shipment temperature when plasma is collected in PPT tubes. Furthermore, plasmas can be shipped in spun PPT tubes, and the tubes provide a safer and more convenient method for sample collection and transport than regular EDTA tubes.  (+info)

Analysis of incidence of childhood cancer in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom in relation to proximity to main roads and petrol stations. (7/1018)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether there is an excess of leukaemias in 0-15 year old children among those living in close proximity (within 100 m) of a main road or petrol station. METHODS: Data for 0-15 year old children diagnosed between 1990 and 1994 in the United Kingdom West Midlands were used. Postcode addresses were used to locate the point of residence which was compared with proximity to main roads and petrol stations separately, and to both together. Odds ratios (ORs) were calculated with solid tumours as a control, and incidence ratios (IRs) with population density as a control. RESULTS: The method based on solid tumours as a control showed ORs of 1.61 (95% confidence interval (95% CI) 0.90 to 2.87) and 1.99 (95% CI 0.73 to 5.43), for those living within 100 m of a main road or petrol station respectively. When population was used as a control, the estimated IRs for leukaemia were 1.16 (95% CI 0.74 to 1.72) and 1.48 (95% CI 0.65 to 2.93) for residence within 100 m of a main road or petrol station respectively, but neither reached significance at the 95% level. Results for residence in close proximity to both a main road and petrol station were inconsistent, but there were few. The influence of socioeconomic factors as represented by the Townsend deprivation index on leukaemia incidence was not significant and the results were not explicable on the basis of impact of social class. CONCLUSIONS: The results are suggestive of a small increase in risk of childhood leukaemia, but not solid tumours, for those living in close proximity to a main road or petrol station. This increase in risk is not, however, significant and a larger study is warranted to establish the true risk and causes of any increase in risk.  (+info)

HIV heterogeneity and proximity of homestead to roads in rural South Africa: an exploration using a geographical information system. (8/1018)

objective To describe heterogeneity of HIV prevalence among pregnant women in Hlabisa health district, South Africa and to correlate this with proximity of homestead to roads. methods HIV prevalence measured through anonymous surveillance among pregnant women and stratified by local village clinic. Polygons were created around each clinic, assuming women attend the clinic nearest their home. A geographical information system (GIS) calculated the mean distance from homesteads in each clinic catchment to nearest primary (1 degrees ) and to nearest primary or secondary (2 degrees ) road. results We found marked HIV heterogeneity by clinic catchment (range 19-31% (P < 0.001). A polygon plot demonstrated lower HIV prevalence in catchments remote from 1 degrees roads. Mean distance from homesteads to nearest 1 degrees or 2 degrees road varied by clinic catchment from 1623 to 7569 m. The mean distance from homesteads to a 1 degrees or 2 degrees road for each clinic catchment was strongly correlated with HIV prevalence (r = 0.66; P = 0.002). conclusions The substantial HIV heterogeneity in this district is closely correlated with proximity to a 1 degrees or 2 degrees road. GIS is a powerful tool to demonstrate and to start to analyse this observation. Further research is needed to better understand this relationship both at ecological and individual levels, and to develop interventions to reduce the spread of HIV infection.  (+info) - Members of Knesset Yael German, Karin Elharrar, and Yoel Razvozov (all from the Yesh Atid party) intend to put forth a bill that would allow local authorities to operate public transportation on Saturday in Israel. The bill would permit minibuses to run within each locality and on intercity roads..

Three proposals for spending $100,000 on public transportation next year have a common destination. Three groups say they can expand Lawrences public transportation to the general public by spending $100,000 of city money.. The groups -- the Douglas County Community Transportation Coordinating Council, A-1 City Cab and a partnership of the Lawrence Bus Co. and Specialized Transportation Services Inc., of Merriam -- want money set aside by Lawrence city commissioners for coordinating current transportation services.. Details of the proposals have not been released, but group representatives say Lawrence residents next year could pick up the phone, call for a ride and be driven to desired destinations at reduced costs.. Its not a citywide, full public transportation system, said Pat Weaver, chair of the coordinating council and an associate scientist at Kansas Universitys Transportation Center. We feel like its taking what we have now and maximizing that as much as we can.. What Lawrence ...

The announcement was made by Bratislava spokesman Peter Bubala.. Moodys claims that it chooses and applies its conceptual reforms from an incomplete boulevard rather than a quick launch of public transportation. Because the face of our city will determine this neighborhood and this major artery for oncoming traffic. In an agreement with investors, we are revising some elements of Boulevard to improve conditions for residents, cyclists, pedestrians and travelers, Bubla said.. The cycling route will be moved along the bi-route north of the street and safely detached from the road. Thus, the collision points designed so far in the area of ​​public transport stops are about to cease. The spokesman said that such a solution would enable the implementation of a two-lane bicycle lane on the south side of the street after the temporary bus station was completed.. The trains will extend from 2.5 to 5.5 meters. The width and number of lanes will also change, the number of bushes and bushes on the ...
In what could be the worst shortage experienced in the history of school transportation, industry leaders nationwide are imploring strategies to help combat a lack of bus drivers. Three local transportation directors in New York state discussed their strategies during a recent webinar co-hosted by Transfinder and the New York Association of Pupil Transportation (NYAPT). In a recent survey conducted by NYAPT and sent to the top managers in their respective operations, Executive Director David Christopher shared during the July 29 webinar that out of 136 respondents, 83 percent said they were not adequately staffed for September school start-up. Meanwhile, 78 percent said they would not be able to hire enough bus drivers to cover their regular home-to-school bus routes in time for the new school year, and 49 percent characterized the bus driver shortage situation as severe to desperate. Over 58 percent of respondents said the pandemic has caused their driver shortage situation to worsen, ...
A major victory for CalBike this year has been the increase in funding of the newly-created Active Transportation Program (ATP). Months of negotiations and hard work have resulted in the increase of the ATPs budget from $90 million to $129 million.. Californias transportation budget is $12 billion. Active transportation in the budget is dedicated towards means of transportation other than motor vehicles, i.e. walking and bicycling (bike/ped). Despite the many benefits of these modes of transportation, from health benefits that come directly from walking and bicycling to improvement of the environment, the transportation budget focuses much greater emphasis on motor vehicle transportation even though this is the money for instance that goes into creating safer school routes for children on a state level.. ATP should be much more than 1% of the entire transportation budget!. The ATP has to be increased to $1 billion per year because $129 million for making transportation easier and safer for ...

The most effective life-saving traffic safety tool for a commuter and a community may be the daily metro transit pass. A person can reduce his or her chance of being in an accident by more than 90 percent simply by taking public transit as opposed to commuting by car. This means traveling by public transportation is ten times safer per mile than traveling by auto. Transit-oriented communities are five times safer than automobile-oriented communities. This means public transit cuts a communitys crash risk in half even for those who do not use public transit. Public transportation communities spur compact development which reduces auto miles traveled and produces safer speeds ...
Contemporary society is characterised by the constant increase of mobility. Although individual mobilities can be seen as a new form of capital and the premise for innovation, this has also a negative impact on surrounding environment and social structures. Hence, human travel behaviour research is essential for understanding a myriad of different societal issues. To date, human travel behaviour has been thoroughly examined using activity-travel diaries predominantly based on short period of time (up to three days). The need to understand travel behaviour from a longitudinal (monthly, yearly) perspective has increased due to the overall increase of individual mobility, together with the increase of the complexity of human travel behaviour and its flexibility in space and time. Mobile phone based data are perceived to be one promising means to cost-effectively assess human movements and its variability in the prolonged perspective. This dissertation ascertains how mobile phone based data can help ...

Taking public transportation. Part 1Back when I had no car but had to travel and take two seperate buses to and from work. Now I am the type of person who does not like to be around people I dont know but when you live in a small town to travel to the city by bus you get used to seeing the same people over and over.One day it was not crowded as I was taking the bus home so I sat in the back to have room to relax and check out any of the girls I normally see. Unfortunately noone special showed up but from where I was sitting I did see a younger male in his mid 20s masturbating through his sweatpants as he was browsing his phone. Im not into men but I did get turned on I must say.That night I came to the best site to browse videos of men on men and got more arroused and curious than ever before. It was like a c***d inside of me wanting ordu escort to be free. The next day on the bus ride home I was hoping to get the back seat which I did and I was lucky enough to get another view of my voyeur friend.

Thousands of riders boarded UTA trains and buses on Free Fare Friday, Dec. 22, and the result was a significant reduction in air pollution. An extra 17,560 cars were removed from the roads that day, and an additional 3 tons of pollutants and 200 tons of greenhouse gases were prevented from entering the atmosphere. Free Fare Friday was designed to encourage people to try public transit - and it worked, said UTA President/CEO Jerry Benson. Thousands of riders boarded our buses and trains, and we were able to save several tons of pollution from entering our atmosphere during a critical time of year for air quality. We hope this translates to more Wasatch Front residents who are willing to leave their cars at home and ride UTA again, especially during inversion season.. Ridership for the entire UTA system increased by 23 percent on Free Fare Friday, compared to the average of five previous weekdays. Approximately 22,800 more people than usual rode public transit on Dec. 22 using the same ...

An apex organisation under the Central Government, is entrusted with the task of formulating and administering, in consultation with other Central Ministries/Departments, State Governments/UT Administrations, organisations and individuals, policies for Road Transport, National Highways and Transport Research with a view to increasing the mobility and efficiency of the road transport system in the country. The Ministry has two wings: Roads wing and Transport wing.
State departments of transportation are focusing increased attention on freight transportation. The reasons are many, obvious and compelling. They include: (1) A rapidly increasing volume of freight; (2) Transportation overloads at major freight gateways; (3) Constraints on infrastructure capacity for all modes; (4) The need for efficiency in intermodal connections; and (5) Heavy traffic in major multimodal, multi-state transportation corridors. As a consequence, many State DOTs are analyzing the freight transportation needs of their states, giving greater priority to freight transportation investments, participating in public-private ventures, and engaging in innovative financing arrangements for freight projects. For most, this shift represents new lines of business and new ways of doing business. Many programmatic and technical issues are involved, but the foundation for programs must be constructed through policy and organization decisions. Therefore, the leaders of the State DOTs need to ...

The National Audit Office of Estonia have been investigating the free public transport introduced in Tallinn, including the free bus and tram travel for local registered people. Analysis included studying whether economic feasibility as well as the mobility needs of people had been taken into account when deciding to cut payment by users. Results on the county model were that free public transport has not reached its goal to reduce car journeys. Whilst public transport use numbers have increased, still more than half of all trips to work are done by car.. What is positive is that the decline in the share of public transport users has stopped for a couple of years, stated Auditor General Janar Holm. Unfortunately, not a significant number of new users have been attracted to public transport despite the fact that over the recent years, the state has allocated more and more funds to cover the costs of county bus transport and has allowed people to travel by bus free of charge in most ...

More than 30 members of Congress, including U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Jesus Chuy Garcia (D-IL), and Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), introduced legislation on Thursday calling for equal funding for transit and highways.. Called the Transit Parity Resolution, the legislation would change how Congress determines to fund highways and public transportation. Currently, Congress uses a formula set in 1982 that allocates 80 percent of federal transportation dollars to highways, and the remaining 20 percent to public transit. The resolution calls for transit funding to be equal to highway funding.. Public transit is a public good, and its past time our government treat it like one, Pressley said. For too long, our federal transportation investments have prioritized highways over public transit, incentivizing travel in private cars, which increases traffic congestion, produces pollution, and exacerbates racial and economic inequality.. The resolution is supported by several transportation ...

Background: Public transportation constitutes a vulnerable sector in modern day society with a high probability of generating mass casualties if attacked. By preparing for mass-casualty attacks (MCAs), response can become more effective and public transportation can become a less rewarding target. However, preparedness for attacks, much like response, implies resource constraints, and this dissertation pinpoints some major dilemmas that inhibit achieving preparedness for MCAs on public transportation in Sweden.. Aim: The aim of this dissertation was to investigate preparedness for mass-casualty attacks on public transportation. This allowed for identification of major challenges for preparedness and response with a particular focus on the Swedish context.. Methods: Study I included 477 MCAs identified through searches of the Global Terrorism Database, journals, newspapers and websites, which were examined with descriptive statistics. Study II thematically analyzed 105 articles attained by ...
Active Transportation is any form of human-powered transportation, such as walking, cycling, using a wheel-chair, in-line skating, or skateboarding. Fayettevilles Active Transportation Plan outlines a network of sidewalks, trails, and bicycle facilities to provide walkers, cyclists, and other users with clear pathways and connections to important City destinations, just like streets and roads do for motorized vehicles. When the plan was adopted, 63 percent of Fayetteville residents lived within 1/2 mile of a shared-use paved trail. By 2040, this number is projected to increase to 97 percent!

The global pandemic of physical inactivity represents a considerable public health challenge. Active transportation (i.e., walking or cycling for transport) can contribute to greater total physical activity levels. Mobile phone-based programs can promote behaviour change, but no study has evaluated whether such a program can promote active transportation in adults. This study protocol presents the design and methodology of The Smart City Active Mobile Phone Intervention (SCAMPI), a randomised controlled trial to promote active transportation via a smartphone application (app) with the aim to increase physical activity. A two-arm parallel randomised controlled trial will be conducted in Stockholm County, Sweden. Two hundred fifty adults aged 20-65 years will be randomised to either monitoring of active transport via the TRavelVU app (control), or to a 3-month evidence-based behaviour change program to promote active transport and monitoring of active travel via the TRavelVU Plus app (intervention).

We understand that the world is changing, and our transportation systems must adapt to those changes. Some changes are cultural: young professionals, in particular, prefer dense urban living and rely on transit, bicycling, and walking. Some are political: the amount of money available for improving our transportation systems can sometimes be uncertain and unstable. Many changes are technological: Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), and autonomous vehicles will continue to influence the way we live, work, and travel.. While culture and politics are elusive, we believe that technology is where professionals can play a major role in adapting our transportation systems to our changing world. Our staff features specialists who have been designing ITS for the California High-Speed Rail project. We are researching how new technologies can be integrated into public transportation systems. Were also strategizing how TNC services can ...
For the past several months, work has continued on processing the Benjamin Gettler Papers donated to the Archives & Rare Books Library. Gettler was a notable lawyer, businessman, and civic activist in Cincinnati, an international philanthropist, and a former member of the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees. Ive been fascinated by the amount of public transit-related history in this collection. An often over-looked part of urban history is transportation infrastructure. Public transportation records can tell us not only where people lived, worked, and played, but also the routes taken and who the routes served. They can also provide insight into how, where, or why neighborhoods changed over time.. Cincinnatis public transportation, as we recognize it today, really began in 1873 when several horse-drawn tram systems merged to form the Cincinnati Consolidated Railway Company. Nearly a decade later, it was renamed the Cincinnati Street Railway Company (Gettler, 2012). It remained the ...
Testimony by Julia Kite, Policy and Research Manager, Transportation Alternatives. ***SUPPORT***. Thank you for convening this hearing. I am Julia Kite, Policy and Research Manager of Transportation Alternatives. We are a 43-year-old membership-based advocacy organization with more than 150,000 New Yorkers in our network, dedicated to biking, walking, and public transportation as city-friendly alternatives to private automobile use in New York City. We advocate on behalf of all of New York Citys pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users for safer and more livable streets.. The topic of todays hearing is very timely, because the parking systems currently in place in New York City are unsustainable, inequitable, and an impractical use of public space. For too long, parking policies have privileged the free or low-cost storage of private property, in the form of cars, on huge swathes of city streets, while pedestrians and public transit users are forced to compete for whatever space they can get. ...
Freight infrastructure is critical to our future growth and competitiveness, said Congressman Smith. Investments in our freight transportation system support our continued economic development by expanding our capacity to transport goods and providing opportunities for job creation across the country.. The Fixing Americas Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, passed by Congress in 2015, supports regionally significant freight and highway projects with funds distributed through a grant program and formula funding. The Freight Infrastructure Reinvestment Act (FIRA) of 2017 will expand upon the investments of the FAST Act by creating a sustainable national freight discretionary grant program supported by a dedicated funding source.. With the creation of a National Freight Mobility Infrastructure Fund, FIRA will administer strategic grants for infrastructure projects across our national freight mobility network. Funded through a minimal one percent fee on the shipment of freight cargo, this program ...

To get around by bus, tram, or metro youll need an OV-chipkaart (public transport chip card)-an electronic payment system, which you hold up to a detector each time you board and leave any bus or tram. You can buy them preloaded at metro, train, and bus stations, or from some magazine kiosks. The cards are debited according to the distance traveled; you can add value to them at machines in the stations. Visit the OV-chipkaart website ( or call the help desk (0900/0980) for more information. You can also buy one-hour tickets from bus/tram drivers, although this works out to be more expensive. The OV-chipkaart can also be used on trains (the check-in/check-out detectors for the trains are clearly marked and in the railway stations, not on board). You have to activate your card for rail travel at one of the OV ticket machines at a railway station. Teams of ticket inspectors occasionally make spot checks on trams and buses. This doesnt happen often but if you are checked and ...
The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) is a state chartered sub-regional transportation planning and programming agency for San Francisco County. SFCTA is a separate legal entity from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, and other transportation agencies in the San Francisco area, with its own administrative structure, policies, staff, budget, and with separate borrowing capacity. The Authority Board consists of the eleven members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.. The Authority was originally created to administer the proceeds of San Franciscos first local sales tax for transportation, which began in 1990 and was passed by voters in 1989 as Proposition B. Since then, the agency has taken additional responsibilities mandated by state law. Beginning in 2004, SFCTA became the administrator of the Proposition K sales tax for transportation approved in November 2003, which substituted the original 1989 tax. The ...

The California state capital, Sacramento, is the sixth largest city in the state. Time magazine named it the most diverse city in America. The diversity can be attributed to the gold rush. Since then, the city is a center of economic and cultural activities. Due to the Mediterranean climate and the quiet neighborhood, the city is an ideal place to live.. So in a city like Sacramento, is it really important for a person to buy a new car or should they completely trust public transportation services? Considering the excellent public transport services, you will surely be caught in a dilemma. So here are some of the reasons to buy a new car instead of relying on public transportation service.. · Climate obstacles Being located only 25 feet. Above sea level, the city offers a Mediterranean climate. It means that summers are hot and dry while winters are cold and humid. The Mediterranean climate is pleasant, but the mercury plummets considerably in winters. In addition, it rains a lot in the area, ...

This summer the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) of northeastern Illinois is launching a unifying marketing campaign to focus on the benefits of riding transit. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Metra and Pace provide two million rides each weekday and riders and non-riders alike benefit from transit in the six-county system.. Transit is the great equalizer, bringing people together from all across our region, says RTA Executive Director Leanne Redden. Riders on public transportation save time and money, and non-riders benefit because public transportation in our region means fewer cars on the road. This summer, the RTA and its transit agencies will focus on how transit unites us and opens doors to economic opportunity for all.. After nearly a decade without a State of Illinois capital program, transit in the RTA region will get a much-needed infusion from the Rebuild Illinois bill passed on June 2 by the General Assembly. The bill provides $2.7 billion in bonding authority for ...

In this paper, we discuss potential safety consequences of increasing internationalization in the domestic coastal sea transportation industry in Norway. Historical developments in the Norwegian maritime industry are compared and discussed in relation to changes in long-haul road transportation and aviation. To set the stage for a discussion of potential safety implications, we consider regulatory challenges associated with increased internationalization. Some questions this paper seeks to answer are: Have resources allocated to safety measures changed as a consequence of the internationalization of transportation systems? Have actual work practices improved or been impeded as a result of the new circumstances affecting the transportation industry? Our paper is based on data from several projects carried out in recent years, providing both qualitative data from interviews and quantitative findings from surveys. The main source of information, however, is the ongoing project Managing transport ...

Welcome to Car Free Americas Web Site... Hi. Im Steve Atlas, founder of I appreciate you visiting our web site. I hope you have viewed some of our city profiles-places with walkable neighborhoods where you can live without needing to depend on a car. If you havent already, look at our gasoline price ticker on the bottom left side of our home page. As you see the price of gas steadily increase (or temporarily decrease to under $4 a gallon), do you remember when gas cost less than $1 per gallon? Nearly every week, there is at least one newspaper article about how people are coping with the high cost of gasoline. Carpooling, selling large homes in communities far from public transportation, biking or using public transportation instead of driving-these are just a few ways people are changing the way they live. Reducing our dependency on a car doesnt need to be a grim business-like taking an unpleasant medicine. Driving less can be fun. Walking, cycling, and using public ...
