The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) recently released its report on the Industry Issues Survey conducted earlier this fall. Thanks to all the ICSA members who took the time to respond to the survey. Your input is important!

The Top Industry Issues 2021 report has a lot of great information, so we encourage you to download it and read it as time permits. Review or download a copy of the full report. You will be asked to fill out a short contact form just so ATRI can see who’s downloading their reports.
