TRB‘s latest edition of the Highway Capacity Manual, Seventh Edition: A Guide for Multimodal Mobility Analytics (HCM7) is now available. Over the years, the manual has evolved to keep pace as the focus of surface transportation planning and operations as the United States has moved from designing and constructing the Interstate highway system to managing a complex and multimodal transportation system that serves a variety of travelers and society.  TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern that will provide an overview of new multimodal methods in the HCM and examine updated applications for pedestrians and bicycles, as well as new applications for connected and automated vehicles (CAVs).
