Managed lane travelers: do they pay for travel as they claimed they would?

Managed lane travelers: do they pay for travel as they claimed they would?

Date: May 2011
Creator: Devarasetty, Prem Chand
Description: "This study examined if travelers are paying for travel on managed lanes (MLs) as they indicated that they would in a 2008 survey. To achieve the objectives, an Internet-based stated preferences (SP) survey of Houston's Katy Freeway travelers was conducted in 2010. Three survey design methodologies-Db-efficent, random level generation, and adaptive random-were tested in this survey."

Equity evaluation of vehicle miles traveled fees in Texas

Date: March 2012
Creator: Burris, Mark
Description: "This report used 2009 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS) Texas data to consider the equity impacts surrounding four vehicle miles traveled (VMT) scenarios. Results indicate that all of the VMT fee scenarios are essentially as equally vertically equitable as the current state gas tax system."

Intercity passenger rail: implications for urban, regional, and national mobility

Intercity passenger rail: implications for urban, regional, and national mobility

Date: December 2011
Creator: Sperry, Benjamin R.
Description: Recent policy and regulatory actions by the U.S. government have revived interest in intercity passenger rail among transportation planners, policymakers, and the general public. As part of a fully integrated multimodal intercity corridor, passenger rail can provide a number of measurable impacts on urban, regional, and national mobility. This research examines these impacts using the Milwaukee-Chicago Hiawatha Service intercity passenger rail route as a case study. In addition to providing competitive travel times with automobile travel and frequent daily service, rail passengers can also seamlessly connect to airline service via a station at the Milwaukee airport. Two data sources--an on-board survey of Hiawatha Service passengers and a more detailed survey of air-rail transfer passengers at the Milwaukee airport--were used to identify the mobility impacts of rail service. If the rail service did not exist, most Hiawatha Service passengers would travel via personal vehicle, which indicates that the Hiawatha Service is providing congestion relief for the highways parallel to the route. The airport link allows for sustainable ground access to the Milwaukee airport and also extends the market area for the airport into the Chicago region, providing those residents with greater choices in air travel. The findings of this project provide ...

Use of Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for roadside condition assessment

Use of Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for roadside condition assessment

Date: December 2010
Creator: Gharaibeh, Nasir G.
Description: "Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (MUAVs) that are equipped with digital imaging systems and global positioning systems provide a potential opportunity for improving the effectiveness and safety of roadside condition and inventory surveys. This study provides an assessment of the effectiveness of MUAVs as a tool for collecting condition data for roadside infrastructure assets using three field experiments."
