Dr. Anne Goodchild presents "What do we want? Approaching urban freight from a community lens"
Abstract While transportation planning has practiced community-engaged planning for many years, the practice is less well-established for freight projects. Historically freight activity was associated with industrial and commercial landuses and the impacted communities largely considered to be freight-related businesses. This oversight has for many years led to conflicts within neighborhoods proximal to significant industrial facilities. […]

Dr. Carlos Rivera-Gonzalez presents 'A facility location problem with freight tour distribution to support Freight-Efficient Land Use planning'
This research developed the first analytical model to aid in Freight-Efficient Land Use (FELU) design and planning while taking into account the effects of land use decisions on supply chains. To do so, an optimal facility location model with entropy maximization was developed. The model minimizes the social costs associated with supply chain activity and […]

Dr. Mehdi Nourinejad presents 'On-street Parking Pricing Strategies'
Parking supply and demand are often imbalanced in urban areas, causing adverse consequences such as excessive search times and long walking distances. Many parking authorities manage parking demand using pricing strategies such as fixed daily fees, hourly pricing, time-of-day pricing, progressive pricing, or dynamic pricing. This presentation discusses the challenges and solutions related to parking […]

Dr. Nael Alsaleh presents 'Sustainability Analysis of On-Demand Public Transit Systems'
There is increased interest from transit agencies to replace fixed-route transit services with on-demand public transit (ODT). However, it is still unclear when and where such a service is efficient and sustainable. This talk provides a comprehensive framework for assessing the sustainability of ODT systems from the perspective of overall efficiency, environmental footprint, and social […]

Dr. Sheng Liu presents 'Planning Bike Lanes with Data'
In this presentation, we present a method and empirical study for planning bike lane networks using data. We first present an estimator for recovering unknown parameters of a traffic equilibrium model from features of a road network and observed vehicle flows, which we show asymptotically recovers ground-truth parameters as the network grows large. We then […]
