Planning & Policy

Research in transportation planning and policy addresses a wide range of issues that affect the planning, design, and building of an intermodal transportation system at the local, regional, and state level. Research in this area has addressed advanced modeling techniques, including activity-based models, the coordination of transportation investments with land use decision-making, bicycle and pedestrian planning, and the interaction of pricing on travel behavior and safety.  Research in this area includes scans of practices used in states, advanced geographic information system (GIS) analysis, and advanced econometric methods to develop tools and inform policy.
