Transportation systems cause negative changes in adjacent and distant ecosystems’ characteristics and processes. These changes are usually not mitigated during construction, maintenance and "re-construction" of facilities.
This presentation presents recent findings from the California Mobility Panel Study, which investigates the evolution of travel patterns and the adoption of new transportation technologies in California over time.
In this webinar, Dr. Miguel Jaller discusses how changes in shopping decisions (from where to shop, what to shop, and how much to shop) will be reflected in logistics and transportation planning models.
This webinar gives an overview of the induced travel concept, summarizes the academic research on induced travel elasticities, introduces the new induced VMT calculator developed by NCST researchers; and provides discussion on the calculator from two California transportation planning and policy experts.
New transportation technologies will change the way we travel, live, and work. In many ways these changes – such as vehicle automation and new mobility services – are new, but this is far from the first time that automation and new technology have changed a sector of the economy. The webinar will explore recent research exploring past technological transformations and what they can teach us to expect for the next one.
This webinar outlines a recent NCST white paper, covering what Long-Distance Travel is, how it has changed over time, how it is related to emissions, economy and equity, prior research, and a framework for moving forward with data collection.
