TRB Webinar: Understanding Polydrug Use and Its Role in Drug-Impaired Driving July 01, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, July 1, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that examines the role polydrug use – the concurrent use of multiple drugs – may play in drug-impaired driving. Polydrug use includes illicit drug use, the intentional misuse of prescription drugs, or the concurrent use of multiple drugs for therapeutic use.  More research into how different drug combinations affect driving is currently underway.

This webinar will discuss recent findings on polydrug use in the general population and among drivers arrested for driving under the influence. The presenters will discuss steps law enforcement is taking to identify polydrug use through the drug evaluation and classification program. They will also describe developments in roadside oral fluid testing that may allow for early detection of drug-impaired driving.

TRB Webinar: Partnerships Between Transit Agencies and Transportation Network Companies July 17, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 0.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 204: Partnerships Between Transit Agencies and Transportation Network Companies (TNCs).

This research is designed to help transit agencies that have decided to pursue partnerships with one or more TNCs. This report draws from twenty case study partnerships explored or implemented by early 2018 in order to provide information on where, when, and how partnerships between transit agencies and TNCs may be considered and pursued. While partnerships between transit agencies and private mobility providers are not new, partnerships with TNCs create unique opportunities and challenges as both parties work toward mutually beneficial program models.

The presenters will discuss the findings related to common motivations, target markets, partnership designs, and case study highlights. They will also provide specific, practical guidance for transit agencies considering partnerships with TNCs.

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

TRB Webinar: Rapid Scenario Planning: Freeway Facilities Analysis Using the HCM July 29, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, July 29, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that provides updates to the latest version of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), Sixth Edition: A Guide for Multimodal Mobility Analysis, which will be released next year.  HCM is commonly used by transportation agencies to evaluate and forecast operations of roadway facilities. It may also be used to cost-effectively and reliably support agencies’ planning, programming, and management decisions.

This webinar will provide an overview of the HCM freeway facilities methodology. This methodology integrates all freeway segment methods in the HCM (basic, merge, diverge, and weaving segments) into a multi time-period analysis framework that tracks queue build-up and dissipation over a 24-hour period.  It provides similar performance measures to a microsimulation analysis, but with shorter turnaround time and a streamlined calibration process. Once a facility has been set up and calibrated, the method supports a Rapid Scenario Planning process, which generates scenario-specific results and sensitivity analyses within minutes, allowing for near real-time decision support for freeway analysis projects. The presenter will provide case study applications of the method, including evaluation of capital improvements, transportation systems management and operations (TSMO) strategies, and work zones from multiple states.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Highway Capacity and Quality of Service.

TRB Webinar: Toolkit for Measuring Public Involvement Effectiveness in Transportation July 30, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 1.50 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Research Report 905: Measuring the Effectiveness of Public Involvement in Transportation Planning and Project Development.

This webinar will illustrate how transportation agencies can use a rigorously tested, user-friendly tool to measure the effectiveness of their public involvement. The Public Involvement Effectiveness Measurement Toolkit enables agency professionals to track performance throughout the project lifecycle, identify strengths and weaknesses of public involvement activities, and support their decisions about how to allocate resources. The Public Involvement Effectiveness Measurement Toolkit may be used with various types of projects, including building new facilities, changes to existing facilities, and planning efforts. The presenters will provide ways to  deploy this toolkit.
