Title LYNX Community Advocacy and Service Engagement (CASE) Project Final Report.
Publication Date May 2009
Media Count 55p
Personal Author R. Houck
Abstract This report is a final assessment of the Community Advocacy & Service Engagement (CASE) project, an FTA-LYNX (Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority) research project designed to study transit education and public engagement methods in Central Florida. In the Orlando area, as in other parts of the country, public transit is generally viewed as a transportation mode of 'last resort.' The research conducted through the CASE project examines the viability of volunteer 'coalitions' in changing misconceptions about transit and advocating for the improvement of transit alternatives. CASE was a five-phase project that used a diverse body of public opinion research to identify common misconceptions about transit and then set out to correct those misconceptions through town hall forums.
