How can transportation agencies reduce overall vehicle miles traveled and still generate revenue? In a recent study, we evaluated the impact of making transit free of charge compared to implementing a VMT tax and whether the costs for travelers is equitable.
Available guidance for agencies to gather an accurate picture of current freight activity is limited. Check out how this community defined their baseline in four steps to be able to evaluate freight zero emission zones as a strategy for meeting new climate and environmental policy goals.
How can a transportation network be enhanced to create better access for moving people safely in an emergency? Learn about a new tool, developed in partnership with the City of Rancho Cucamonga, for evaluating access and egress under different evacuation scenarios.
In part two of a series on evolving traffic validation, we examined StreetLight as a potential source for larger samplings of turning movement volume estimates to overcome the limitations of using one- or two-day counts.
We are excited to share the release of an update to the CAPCOA Quantifying Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Measures. Over the past decade, practitioners have relied heavily on this key reference document for developing VMT and emissions mitigation measures.
In part one of a two-part series on traffic volume estimation and StreetLight validation, we examine key questions to understand the possible variations for two industry standard methods.
