Transportation Research Circular
Transportation Research Circular E-C084: Pedestrians: Research Needs Statements was published by TRB in December 2005 and contains the Top 16 Pedestrian Needs Statements (RNS) (and approximately 80 other important research topics). This document provides important RNS that research organizations can adopt and fund. The Top 16 RNS are more fully-developed statements, but they should be viewed as “specials” rather than the only research topics on the menu. Some organizations may find that many of the other 80 topics are also relevant for their research needs.
