The Journal of Public Transportation

leave a comment »

The Journal of Public Transportation is published quarterly by the National Center for Transit Research

It is unlike most academic journals in that it is distributed free as a pdf. I get mine by email. I would hope that most of my readers who are interested in transit are at least aware of it. If you are wondering what is in that pdf link but have not yet clicked on it to see, here are the first two pages

Bonus for those who read entire blog post only: Stumble Upon is changing the way it interacts with users. It is encouraging them to create a blog out of their recommendations – at least those where they have written something, as opposed to just “liking” it. So mine is now here. I have yet to draw any attention to it as I doubt its value, and it is not necessarily restricted to any subject area, like this blog. Although I have no time to look at everything that gets circulated by Stumblers and have limited the number of subjects.
