Accessibility: Towards a new multimodal system performance metric

December 3, 2014

For years, transportation agencies have relied primarily on measures of traffic congestion and delay to evaluate system performance. Many are now looking toward measures of accessibility, which can potentially reveal more about how a transportation system meets people’s needs, while taking additional modes into account. In this webinar, SSTI highlights noteworthy examples, including work underway for Maryland DOT and metrics being developed for widespread use throughout the U.S.

Speakers: Andrew Owen, Director of the University of Minnesota Accessibility Observatory; Richard Kuzmyak, Principal, Renaissance Planning Group; and Kate Sylvester, Community Planner, Maryland DOT.
