rural transportation state of affairs
At a GlanceRural Transportation – “State of Affairs”
  • More than a 33% of US population live outside of urbanized areas1
  • Rural residents comprise 27% of US population2
  • Public transportation is non-existent for 41% of rural residents2
  • 25% of rural residents get inadequate service (< 25 trips per year)2
  • 91 million people live in areas eligible for Section 5311 funding
  • More than 33% of rural residents are transportation dependent2
  • Rural areas get 4.5% of general Federal transportation funds1

rural transportation specific challenges
Rural Transportation – Specific Challenges

Present / Short-Term

Long-Term / Forecasted

“Age Wave”:

20% of US population will be 65 and over by 20254

Considerations in Service Design

Global Competitiveness:

Highly Mobilized Workforce

Reduce Outsourcing

Section 5310 Challenges3:

  • Non-Profits Service Clientele Exclusively (Non-Maximized Capacity)
  • Potential Riders Excluded Based on Disability Type

Job Access:

  • Spatial Mismatch
  • System Wide Cost-Effective Access

Management (Decision Making):

  • Lack of Coordination

Present / Short-Term

Long-Term / Forecasted

Increased Rural Funding

Re-weighted and Re-structured Funding Formulas

  • Policy and Regulation:
    • 5310 Administration and Fund Allocation
  • Resource Allocation:
    • Optimizing Asset Allocation and Employment
  • Service and Program Redesign:
    • Management Structure
    • Reporting

Rural Transportation –“Outsourcing Concept”

3PL and 4PL Providers

Applied in Rural Scenario

Specifically Skilled Labor

Shortage of Resources e.g. Rolling Stock, Facilities, Materials etc.

More Coordination

Need – Cost Savings, Better Asset Utilization, and System Wide Information Sharing

  • 3PL – Perform a Function on Behalf of a Company or Agency
  • 4PL – Manages a Company’s or Agency’s 3PL Activities
  • Commodities Provided:

3PL – Labor, Space, and Time

4PL – Dynamic Management

Goal:Maximize Mobility through Coordination

Objectives:Development of Funding, Asset, and Information Sharing Programs and Initiatives

Partners:

  • Federal Transit Administration (4PL)
    • Centralized Coordination Management
  • State / Local Agency (3PL)
    • Decentralized Coordination Execution
    • Designated State or Local body e.g. RPO, Research Institute, DOT etc.
  • Providers
    • Public / Private / Non-Profit
    • Focus on Provision of Service
    • Spend Less Time in Actual Coordination and More in Transportation
