Paper presented at the 28th Annual Southern African Transport Conference 6 - 9 July 2009 "Sustainable Transport", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
The Research and Development Directorate of the National Department of Transport and CSIR have developed a research compendium portal. This project is in line with the main aim of this directorate which is to effectively manage a national innovative research and development programme. The research compendium portal is a database providing access to information
pertaining to public transport projects in the Republic of South Africa from 2003. The specific projects include regulatory, policy, implementation work and the documents range from research, courses, workshops, reports, thesis and dissertations and technical projects done by consultants.The main aim of setting up this portal is to provide free, quick and efficient access to information, for the purpose of knowledge sharing within the Public Transport domain to the extent that confidentiality allows. The portal will contribute to knowledge sharing, improve skills and reduce duplication of work that has already been done. It is also intended as a working tool for external and internal use. It contains a search engine to allow for documents to be searched by geographical location, source of the work and theme.
