School Transportation: Development of an Education Module and Workshops on Multi-modal Costs

This research project presents a conceptual overview of the policy issue of school siting via an education module and introduces a practitioner tool to support the school siting decision making process. As previous research outlines, school siting, or the physical location of a school, can impact school travel rates and costs. This module and decision support tools enables practitioners to identify and compare the tradeoffs in up-front land costs with ongoing transport costs. The education module, hosted online, was developed for use in graduate courses in urban planning, engineering, and education and continuing education workshops in school siting and pupil transportation.
