Evaluation of School Travel Patterns and Preferences

This research proposal includes several efforts to support the use of the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) MSTA School Traffic Calculator (STC), with specific focus on estimates generated for vehicular demand rates and queue length. The specific efforts include expanding the sample size of locations with highly variable estimates, evaluating trends related to school travel, comparing loading/unloading zone techniques, and developing recommendations for modeling school locations in Synchro.
