TRB Webinar: Practices and Marketing to Increase Rural Transit Ridership and Investment August 27, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Transit marketing professionals are invited to a TRB webinar on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Project 20-65 Task 73: Best Practices And Marketing To Increase Rural Transit Ridership And Investment.

The webinar will explore practices currently being used in transit agencies and state departments of transportation (DOTs) to increase ridership in rural areas. Attracting and maintaining ridership is a primary challenge facing rural transit systems. Alongside this concern is a parallel challenge to find a way to invest in transit strategies that strengthens return on investment. Presenters will provide an overview of the research conducted, discuss practices for rural transit agencies and state DOTs, and identify how to measure the return on investment.

TRB Webinar: Roundabout Implementation Experience - Overcoming Challenges August 29, 2019 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM U.S. Eastern 2.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

Traffic design engineers are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday, August 29, 2019, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET. The webinar will provide guidance that overcomes challenges of roundabout implementation and provides successful outcomes. During the last ten years, the roundabout implementation experience started to show how transferable a concept or design is to many locations. Existing research and guidance shares these basic concepts, but there is very little real-world experience to help decision-makers with these applications within the roadway network. Facing challenges with the public, design, signals and operations, traffic design engineers may use case studies, modeling assumptions, and traffic models to assist decision-makers in seeing the possibilities of a roundabout and address the challenges they are often concerned about.

This webinar features a presentation on modeling insights and shares two individual case studies of roundabout intersections at locations where the implementation experience played a significant role in achieving success for the roundabout. Presenters will also discuss how engineers may assist decision-makers in looking at their previously held assumptions about roundabouts and instead view them as a valuable tool in traffic design.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Roundabouts.

TRB Webinar: Lessons Learned in Transportation Scenario Planning September 11, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

State and city transportation managers are invited to a TRB webinar on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar will provide an overview of the Massachusetts’ Commission on the Future of Transportation Commonwealth findings and what these insights mean for other states and cities and what they plan around future forces in transportation. The Commission considered forces similar to those described in NCHRP Report 750, the Foresight Series, and worked to update the facts and trends in that series, as well as the role played by scenario development and planning during the process. This webinar includes a discussion about the Commission with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) by Commission members and the consultant team that supported the effort. Presenters will go over the lessons learned through the Commission and offer a resource and model that will assist city and state departments of transportations in examining future disruptions – and current responses to them – in their transportation systems.

Transportation technology developers are invited to a TRB webinar on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar will provide an overview of the demographics and characteristics of the visually impaired population and discuss the implications of technologies developed to aid this population. Developers of wayfinding or safety technologies intended to help the visually impaired may make incorrect assumptions that lead to interfaces or products that are too complex for users and don’t address the real problems the population faces. Presenters will provide research-based information about the evaluation of technologies, including what is most important to the visually impaired, meaningful and practical measures of technology effectiveness, and the relative merits of subjective evaluation of technologies and human factors testing.

TRB Webinar: Open Graded Pavements: A Primer with Emphasis on Water Quality Benefits September 19, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Pavement designers are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday, September 19, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. This webinar will describe open graded pavement designs for highways, including Permeable Friction Course (PFC) overlays. These overlays are thin-lift open-graded pavement sections placed over a conventional highway pavement section that are used to reduce noise, enhance traction during wet weather, and improve visibility. PFCs also have the potential to improve runoff water quality from highways. Presenters will review the properties of PFC that may help improve runoff water quality and review studies about water quality improvement from PFC overlays. They will also demonstrate how PFC may provide effective water mitigation in stormwater programs.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Asphalt Binders and Stormwater.

TRB Webinar: Capture the Data – Quantifying Airport Ground Access Vehicle Activity September 26, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.00 0.00 0.00

Airport personnel are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday, September 26, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 180: Guidebook for Quantifying Airport Ground Access Vehicle Activity for Emissions Modeling.


This webinar will discuss how airports can determine the data required to model ground access vehicle (GAV) emissions for airport projects and explain the established methods for obtaining and/or deriving GAV-specific data for modeling purposes. Airports conduct air quality studies for conformity determinations and other environmental and health-related assessments. GAVs include private vehicles, taxis, shuttles, rental cars, and delivery vehicles. They can be significant contributors to an airport’s emissions inventory and should therefore be considered in airport air quality studies.

TRB Webinar: The Near-Road Pooled Fund Study September 30, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

Air quality transportation professionals are invited to a TRB webinar on Monday, September 30, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar will provide an overview of the research done through the transportation pooled fund (TPF) to understand near-road air quality data, improve near-road air quality evaluations, implement effective mitigation, and more effectively respond to stakeholder information requests. Near-road air quality has been recognized for many years as an important environmental concern. In 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency mandated near-road air quality monitoring and in response, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and seven state departments of transportation created TPF to assess near-road air quality. This webinar will address the four areas used to assess near-road air quality: emissions, measured concentrations, modeled concentrations, and considerations for screening proposed transportation projects. Presenters will also discuss how attendees can understand near-road air quality issues and evaluate them on their own. 

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Transportation and Air Quality.
