STRIDE Organizes Symposium to Disseminate Transportation Safety Research Findings
A day-long symposium on Transportation Safety: From Research to Practice was held on April 3 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Fla. The event attracted 33 practitioners from consulting firms, state agencies, and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs). The presenters—comprising UF researchers from transportation engineering, urban and regional planning, and occupational therapy— discussed the latest technologies, analysis techniques, and data tools, including the management of vulnerable populations and policy initiatives. The symposium followed in a series of technology transfer events organized by the UF Transportation Research Center in collaboration with STRIDE to disseminate research findings from projects funded in part by the Center for Multimodal Solutions for Congestion Mitigation (CMS), a USDOT, grant-funded, Tier-1 University Transportation Center.
