Questions for July's Book Club Contest: "Transit Street Design Guide" by NACTO

For the July 2017 Book Club selection, TransportiCA has chosen the Transit Street Design Guide, by the National Association of City Transportation Officials ("NACTO").

With every month's selection, TransportiCA provides three questions, and if you send us all three correct responses by the end of the month, and your name is drawn, you will win a copy of the book, signed by the author(s).

The contest questions for the Transit Street Design Guide:

(1) Transit-first street design...means treating __________ as the foundation of the transportation system.

(2) True or False: Transit mode share and transit-supportive infrastructure are directly correlated to higher traffic fatality rates.

(3) Level or near-level boarding, multi-door boarding and advanced payment options, and better passenger information can cut dwell time _______, or more.


Lastly, the always amazing Island Press is offering a 20% discount on all NACTO guides!  Use the code "2NACTO" at checkout.

No purchase is necessary, as questions are not taken directly from the publication, but from respective technical information and publicity.  To send-in your responses, submit via TransportiCA's "Contact Form" on the front-page (bottom left), sending your name, email address and answers.  The deadline for submission is 23:59, Monday, 31 July 2017.

Thank you for your interest in the Book Club, and best of luck with the contest!
