Traffic operations and management practitioners are invited to a TRB webinar on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, from 2:00-3:30 PM. This webinar will discuss the multi-modal analysis methods incorporated into the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), Sixth Edition. The HCM is commonly used by transportation agencies to evaluate and forecast operations of roadway facilities.  

Urban streets are used by a variety of travelers, including motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and public transit users. Projects intended to improve operations for one mode may also affect users of other modes, for better or for worse. The Highway Capacity Manual 6th Edition provides an integrated multimodal analysis framework to help analysts understand and quantify these trade-offs. This webinar will demonstrate how the HCM quantifies multimodal operations and quality of service and will provide case study examples of actual applications.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Highway Capacity and Quality of Service. It is the fourth in a series of webinars about the HCM. The previous webinars were held on June 10, 2019, July 29, 2019, and August 22, 2019.

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