Developing an interdisciplinary certificate program in transportation planning.  Phase 2,  The eCertificate :  final report

Developing an interdisciplinary certificate program in transportation planning. Phase 2, The eCertificate : final report

Date: October 2010
Creator: Ndubisi, Forster, 1955- & Dumbaugh, Eric
Description: This proposal extends the delivery of the recently developed graduate Certificate in Transportation Planning to a wider audience through the establishment of an Executive Certificate Program by distance (eCertificate). While the need for an interdisciplinary approach to transportation is widely recognized by the professional community, there are few educational programs that address the field of transportation in a truly comprehensive, interdisciplinary manner. Texas A&M University's (TAMU's) university-wide graduate Certificate in Transportation Planning was established in August 2008 to address this need. This program has proved to be very successful. A limitation of the existing certificate program is that it is available only to graduate students at TAMU in College Station. The eCertificate program extends the delivery of the existing certificate to a wider audience of professionals interested in transportation in selected metropolitan areas in Texas. Preliminary indications suggest that an audience for the certificate exists in major metropolitan areas in Texas, especially Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. The certificate will increase access, expand Texas A&M's transportation curriculum, and enhance the university's position as a national leader in transportation education.

Creating the next generation of transportation professionals

Creating the next generation of transportation professionals

Date: November 2011
Creator: Finley, Melisa D. & Jasek, Debbie
Description: The transportation industry, like every other profession that relies heavily on the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, faces a growing shortage of professional engineers. The purpose of this project was to investigate new methods for conducting educational outreach activities for kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) students and compare the effectiveness of various implementation methods. During this project, Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) researchers developed two in-class educational outreach modules and several displays that they could easily transport and exhibit at various educational outreach activities. The first in-class module introduces intermediate school students to the world of transportation and transportation engineering and teaches students about the principle of retroreflectivity. The second in-class module teaches kindergarten students about sign shapes and colors. TTI researchers also participated in 12 educational outreach activities. These activities included: Four in-school events, four field trips to TTI facilities, three summer activities, and one engineering day event. The students participating in these activities ranged from kindergarten to twelfth grade. The educational outreach activities conducted introduced the fields of transportation and engineering to over 2000 students.

Multi-vehicle mobility allowance shuttle transit (MAST) system : an analytical model to select the fleet size and a scheduling heuristic

Multi-vehicle mobility allowance shuttle transit (MAST) system : an analytical model to select the fleet size and a scheduling heuristic

Date: June 2012
Creator: Quadrifoglio, Luca & Lu, Wei
Description: "This report discusses the mobility allowance shuttle transit (MAST) system which is a hybrid transit system in which vehicles are allowed to deviate from a fixed rout to serve flexible demand. The mixed interfere programming (MIP) formulation analyzed the impacts of time headways between consecutive transit vehicles on the performance of a two-vehicle MAST system. An analytical framework is then developed to model the performance of both one-vehicle and two-vehicle MAST systems, which is used to identify the critical demand level at which an increase of the fleet size from one to two vehicles would be appropriate. From this research an insertion heuristic for a multi-vehicle MAST system was developed."

Development of statistical models to forecast crossing times of commercial vehicles

Development of statistical models to forecast crossing times of commercial vehicles

Date: July 2011
Creator: Kang, Dong Hun; Ochoa, Cesar; Rajbhandari, Rajat & Garcia, Francisco
Description: In this report statistical models were developed to predict crossing times of trucks over a short range of time. The statistical prediction models use historic data and take into account empirical relationships between border-crossing-related parameters and truck crossing times.

Evaluating the use of transfers for improving rural public transportation systems

Evaluating the use of transfers for improving rural public transportation systems

Date: August 2011
Creator: Quadrifoglio, Luca; Shen, Chung-Wei & Edrington, Suzie
Description: "In this report researchers consider a variation of the regular demand responsive transit system that adopts the transfer practice to reduce operating costs.Researchers evaluated the effect of different transfer operating policies by developing a simulation model of several plausible scenarios. The results indicate that zoning with transfer can provide significant benefits paratransit operations that are managing zoning structure."

The value of public transportation for improving the quality of life for the rural elderly

The value of public transportation for improving the quality of life for the rural elderly

Date: July 2012
Creator: Mjelde, James W.; Dudensing, Rebekka; Cherrington, Linda Kay; Yanhong, Jin; Israel, Alicia A. & Chen, Junyi
Description: "This report focuses on non-medical transportation; medical transportation is addressed in the literature and is more widely available to the elderly. Because expanded rural transportation systems likely will be funded by taxpayers, an understanding of their preferences and willingness-to-pay for non-medical transportation options is essential."

The 2011 Mileage-Based User Fee Symposium

The 2011 Mileage-Based User Fee Symposium

Date: September 2011
Creator: Goodin, Ginger & Wood, Nicholas
Description: The fuel tax is rapidly losing its ability to support system needs. Federal environmental regulations and the escalating price of fossil fuels have created a strong incentive to develop and utilize more fuel-efficient vehicles, which will drive down fuel tax revenues relative to use of the nation's roadway network. Given the challenges associated with the declining sustainability of the fuel tax, the likely successor is a road user fee largely based on actual usage. This project sponsored the third annual two-day Symposium on Mileage-Based User Fees that brought together professionals in the field of mileage-based fees for the purpose of sharing information on current applications and exploring their potential as a supplement or replacement for the fuel tax.
