The OERTransport Multimodal Transportation Planning textbook is being piloted this semester as a part of the course Transportation Planning (URP 6930/TTE 5501). The textbook was developed by USF faculty Peng Chen, Tia Boyd, and Kristine Williams. The book introduces students to multimodal transportation planning, covering a variety of topics that address the relationship between land use and transportation, the difference between traditional methods and multimodal planning best practices, and the importance of evaluating performance from an accessibility and quality of service perspective.
The development of this textbook was made possible by the support of the U.S. Department of Education, which in January 2021 awarded the three-year funded project: OERTransport: Enabling Transportation Planning Professional Advancement to the University of Texas-Arlington (UTA) in consortium with California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) and the University of South Florida (USF). OERTransport supports transportation education by making transportation planning textbooks more accessible and affordable.
