TRB Webinar: Transportation Network Companies: Challenges and Opportunities for Airport Operators January 31, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.50 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, January 31, 2018, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Synthesis 84: Transportation Network Companies: Challenges and Opportunities for Airport Operators.

This webinar will discuss how transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft have become common providers of ground transportation at airports. The research summarizes the amount of revenue airports receive from TNCs and how TNCs are affecting airport operations and other businesses. Airport surveys show that terminology and signage for TNC customers across airports are inconsistent, that airport staff may need more resources to manage TNCs, and that this new mode is affecting how passengers use other important revenue sources such as public parking areas, other ground transportation operators, and rental cars.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.

TRB Webinar: Runway Protection Zone Risk Assessment Tool February 07, 2018 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.50 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Research Report 168: Runway Protection Zones (RPZs) Risk Assessment Tool Users' Guide.

The research helps airport operators evaluate the risk of an aircraft accident within an RPZ. Although RPZs are supposed to be clear of structures and people, it is still common for activities to occur within an RPZ for many reasons, and these reasons can be beyond the control of the airport operator. This webinar will discuss the development of the Runway Protection Zone (RPZ) Risk Assessment Tool and the risk assessment framework that serves as the basis for the tool, and the presenters will demonstrate the tool.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that will provide an overview about the state-of-the-practice for roller-compacted concrete (RCC) pavements. RCC is placed with conventional or high-density asphalt paving equipment, and then compacted with rollers. This webinar will focus on information in Technical Brief FHWA-HIF-16-003.* It will illustrate the uses for RCC, as well as materials, mixtures, construction, and design approaches of RCC pavements. Presenters will discuss lessons learned and discuss a case study from a state that used RCC. This webinar is a follow-up to a webinar of the same name conducted in 2017.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Design and Rehabilitation of Concrete Pavements, and Concrete Pavement Construction and Rehabilitation.
