TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, April 29, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET to discuss methods for identifying, evaluating, and mitigating access and affordability challenges for priced managed lanes facilities. Priced managed lanes provide governments and local authorities with regional transportation network improvements and funding sources. However, pricing and access policies may impose disproportionately adverse effects to other users. Presenters will describe how to ensure that both vertical and horizontal equity concerns that result from pricing and access decisions are alleviated. They will share current practices from a diverse portfolio of projects, each with unique equity concerns.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Managed Lanes.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar.  Sign into to view registration information.
