The University of South Florida has launched On Point, a Blog that features analysis and insight from USF Faculty and Researchers. CUTR Director Jason Bittner has been contributing thoughts on transportation related issues. The blog was launched to help feature USF Faculty during the Republican National Convention in Tampa. (NOTE: Jason Bittner was CUTR Director at…
In previous work for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), CUTR identified performance measures and developed a modified set of evaluation procedures for the Commuter Assistance Programs (CAPs) that FDOT funds in different regions of the state.
Estimating Costs and Benefits of Emissions Reduction Strategies for Transit by Extending the TRIMMS Model
This study details the development of a series of improvements to the Trip Reduction Impacts of Mobility Management Strategies (TRIMMS™) model.
The primary objective of Project UCARE (Uniform Cost Accounting and Reporting Elements) is to develop and test a candidate reporting system which will accumulate commuter assistance program industry financial and operating results by uniform categories.
This study examined whether multimodal trip planners can be developed using open‐source software and open data sources.
The ability to travel where and when one desires is a basic requirement for independent living that most people take for granted.
Faced with substantial funding shortfalls in meeting transportation needs, one of Washington State Department of Transportation’s key strategies for persevering mobility is improving the efficient operation of the existing transportation facilities by increasing the use of transportation demand management (TDM) strategies to decrease drive alone rates.
Developing a Technique that Predicts the Impacts of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) on a Transportation System
Given declining resources, pressing problems, and environmental constraints, state departments of transportation (DOTs) are increasingly motivated to manage peak demand of vehicle trips as a way to mitigate congestion and improve overall performance of the highway system.
The purpose of this research was to evaluate five transportation planning processes used in Florida to determine how greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions considerations can be incorporated into the processes.
The policy of FDOT is to use “the Florida Advance Traveler Information System as the primary method to disseminate timely and important travel information to the public so that the public can make informed decisions regarding their travel plans.”
Quantifying the Net Social Benefits of Vehicle Trip Reductions: Guidance for Customizing the TRIMMS© Model
This study details the development of a series of enhancements to the Trip Reduction Impacts of Mobility Management Strategies (TRIMMS) model.
This report describes a spreadsheet template and related guidance to help providers of vanpool services better meet the requirements of the National Transit Database.
