  • Impact of Employer-based Programs on Transit System Ridership and Transportation System Performance

    This document reports on a study that established a direct quantitative relationship between employer-based Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies and the performance of a transportation system. The objectives were to develop a methodology for measuring the impacts of employer-based TDM programs on the performance on a traffic network using measures universal to all transportation-related staff.

    This document is a User's guide to INDEX PlanBuilder, an interactive GIS-based planning support system designed to assist in community planning and development, including measurement of existing conditions, creation of scenarios, evaluation of alternatives, and implementation of adopted plans.

  • Creating Low-Traffic Developments: Adjusting Site-Level Vehicle Trip Generation Using URBEMIS

    This report discusses URBEMIS, a simple yet powerful tool; that employs standard traffic engineering methodologies, but provides the opportunity to adjust the standard ITE rates to wuantify the impact of a development's location, physical characteristics and any demand management programs. Standard trip generation rates are most useful for auto-oriented, stand-alone suburban sites, from where the vast majority of data weer collected. This new tool addresses the problem of better adjusting trip generation rates to diverse areas.

  • TCRP Report 93 Travel Matters: Mitigating Climate Change with Sustainable Surface Transportation

    This report discusses key strategies for reducing transportation emissions- increasing the use of transit, changing land use patterns, and adopting energy-efficient technologies and fuels in transit fleets.

  • TCRP Report 128 Effects on TOD Housing, Parking, and Travel

    This report provides original data on TOD Residential trip generation and parking, the behavior and motivation of TOD residents, employees, and employers in their mode choice. It also identifies best practices to promote, maintain, and improve TOD-related transit ridership.

  • The Transit Capacity and Quality of Service Manual (TCQSM)

    The TCQSM provides transportation practitioners with a consistent set of techniques for evaluating the quality of service and capacity of transit services, facilities, and systems. Its objectives include providing logical set of methods for assessing transit services, facilities, and systems; assuring that practitioners have access to the latest research results; and presenting example problems illustrating the application of different procedures.

  • Center for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)

    The Center for Transit-Oriented Development is a national nonprofit effort dedicated to providing best practices, research and tools to support market-based transit-oriented development. The Center partners with both public and private sectors to strategize ways to encourage the development of high-performing TOD projects around transit stations and to build transit systems that maximize the development potential.

  • 2007 State of the Commute Survey Report from the Metropolitan Washington Region

    The 2007 SOC survey documents trends in commuting behavior, such as commute mode shares and distance traveled, and prevalent attitudes about specific transportation services, such as public transportation, that are available to commuters in the region.

  • Commuting in America III (2006)

    Commuting in America III examines current commuting patterns in light of longstanding trends and emerging factors that affect commuting everyday. The Census Bureaus' 2000 decennial census and its predecessor long-form surveys in the 1990, 1980, 1970, and 1960 decennial censuses form the primary information source for this and the two previous commuting reports. Such detailed, geographically comprehensive data on commuting patterns provide uniform nationwide demographic information associated with work travel and are consistent with most other national strategies.

  • The 2009 TTI Annual Urban Mobility Report

    The 2009 Urban Mobility Report builds on previous reports with an improved methodology and expanded coverage of the nation's urban congestion problem and solutions. The report provides detailed information on congestion trends, the most recent congestion comparisons and a description of many congestion improvement strategies.

  • The WMATA 2005 Development-Related Ridership Survey

    This document is an update to a survey last conducted in 1989. 49 sites composed of high-density office, residential, retail, hotel, and entertainment land uses in 13 Metrorail station areas participated. The survey explores results and findings to better identify the relationship between land use and transportation.
