WORKSHOP ON TRANSIT AND HIGHWAY OPERATIONS AND MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES. WORKSHOP SUMMARY

The focus was on methods to estimate near-term demand changes due to typical automobile, transit and paratransit projects. A number of operating and management techniques were examined to determine whether travel-analysis methods are available and used in planning. Options included transportation system management, freeways, reserved lanes, priority parking, transit fare and service changes, express bus operation and demand responsive services. Methods of travel demand analysis include traditional models, the newer disaggregate methods, and pivot-point and other hybrid procedures. The gap between state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice is primarily institutional. It was determined that three steps can be taken: (1) Make new travel analysis methods more usable; (2) Increase the capability of practicing planners through training and retraining; (3) Improve communication between those with knowledge and those who need it. For many highway and transit operations where projects are small and benefits are not large, there is still a need for simple, accurate and easily usable travel analysis methods.
