New York Times: The Mystery of the Missing Bus Riders

Researchers at Georgia Tech's School of Civil and Environmental Engineering who have been studying the decline of bus ridership have found a demographic clue that could explain declining bus ridership numbers. 

Kari Watkins, the Frederick Olmstead Law Associate Professor, and Simon Berrebi, a post-doctoral fellow, compared bus-stop data going back to 2012 in Minneapolis, Atlanta, Miami and Portland, Ore., four notably different areas where transit agencies automatically count passengers as they board the bus.

National media tap Tech structural engineering, transportation expertise after I-85 bridge collapses

Lauren Stewart talks with WSB-TV's Tom Regan about the Interstate 85 bridge collapse in Atlanta. Stewart said coordinated investigationsof the cause, cleanup of the site, and reconstruction of the highway will likely take months. She was among a handful of School of Civil and Environmental Engineering researchers who offered their engineering expertise to Atlanta and national media in the wake of the disaster.
