Spatial and Temporal Utility Modeling to Increase Transit Ridership

This research project was directed at developing a better understanding of the possible alternatives that a large employment center can adopt in order to better utilize transit, mitigate traffic, and reduce the demand for on-site parking. Using the University of California at Santa Barbara as a case study, researchers focused on three areas: 1) using a survey to to understand commuting employees; 2) spatially identifying the possible existence of areas where transit service is competitive or nearly so the use of single occupant vehicles; and, 3) identifying areas in which special express bus routes could provide competitive access to the University.
