Connect with and learn from Cambridge Systematics experts across the spectrum of transportation, including: integrated planning and policy; modeling and analytics.
Multimodal evaluation requires clear goals and evaluation measures that span modes and resonate with stakeholders. This workshop reports on recent state and Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) efforts and discusses opportunities to use multimodal goals and performance measures to break the modal-silo approach to programming projects.
This session focuses on developing an asset management culture in planning organizations. Topics include the pursuit of the ISO-55000 standards, asset class strategies in support of transit asset management (TAM) and return on investment on the state of good repair.
As our cities and urban areas become more densely populated and traffic congestion grows, efficient and timely deliveries of goods and services is becoming more challenging. Join this session to hear about the research and programs on curbspace management being conducted in urban areas around the world to help address these challenges.
The role of transportation planning is changing. Agencies must prepare to address rapidly evolving customer expectations, emerging technologies and data sources, broader responsibilities for planning all modes for both people and freight, and a growing list of uncertainties and potential disruptors. This session shares recent research on the evolving role of the transportation planner, followed by a panel discussion among agency leaders on the challenges they face developing and retaining their planning workforce.
The session focuses on the practical experience and results of research programs related to corridor programs in Europe, Asia and the U.S. Presenters will discuss the game-changing technologies that enable seamless global intermodal supply chains door-to-door.
Many states are placing a greater emphasis on how they plan for transportation needs in rural areas, including required coordination with elected officials in nonmetropolitan areas. Come to this session to hear about recent activities among TRB, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and other partners, including a peer exchange hosted by the FHWA and the Florida Department of Transportation (DOT) in 2018. You will be able to share your ideas during a facilitated discussion among attendees.
How are state and regional agencies advancing equity in the transportation planning process? How do (or should) agencies define equity and economic disparity in the planning process and resulting plans? How can transportation agencies prioritize equity in long-range plans? What emerging practices and measurement approaches promote a more holistic view of equity and transportation’s contributions to an equitable future? Come find out during the sixth annual “Fresh Ideas in Statewide Multimodal Transportation Planning” poster session.
Transportation policies that affect gender require multiple data-collection methods to ensure an appropriate statistical analysis. This workshop looks at the type of cognitive bias that can occur at any phase of transportation research, including planning, data collection and analysis.
This Poster Session demonstrates potential applications of the Commodity Flow Survey microdata and share the challenges and lessons learned from using this new dataset.
This lightning-round style session features finalists from the Innovations in Transit Performance Measurement Challenge.
