Improving the Quality and Cost effectiveness of Multimodal Travel Behavior Data Collection
Sean J. Barbeau Ph.D
The objectives of this project are to improve multimodal infrastructure planning and transit service quality by increasing the cost-effectiveness and quality of data from all modes of transportation, including transit, bike, walk, transportation network companies (TNCs), for example Uber and Lyft)), carshare, and bikeshare. This objective is accomplished via the development of a plugin for the OneBusAway mobile app to collect travel data including origin/destination, transfers, trip travel path, and travel time data.
- Reduce data collection cost per completed trip based the cost of existing data collection efforts used by transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), and Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT); and
- Collect travel behavior data from 500 OBA users that opt-in to detailed tracking using OBA- TRACIT.
