Join us for our next Community Builders Webinar
on July 17, noon-1PM, Mountain Daylight Time. Jim Charlier will be back with us for the second installment of our transportation series. This time, we will be discussing transportation performance measures, which allow decision-makers to monitor the functionality of existing transportation systems, and to estimate the effects of proposed plans or projects.
Traditional measures of transportation performance include assessments of congestion and highway level of service. Increasingly, transportation agencies are seeking to include more multi-modal information—with data on pedestrian, bicycle, and transit activity—in addition to traditional performance measures. New technology has made it easier to incorporate alternate sources of data, with the potential to transform future transportation funding and planning.
This is a great opportunity for public and private sector planners, urban designers, and engineers to catch up with important developments in local, state, and regional transportation planning.
