The South Carolina (SC) Bike and Pedestrian Clearinghouse is part of a larger movement to advance the built environment and mobility needs and promote the adaption of multimodal solutions in the state of SC. The webinar will give an introduction to the SC’s built environments with bike and pedestrian facilities, how efforts have evolved through the years, what has been accomplished, and then go through the structure of the newly developed bike and pedestrian clearinghouse resources.

This research project presents a comparison of minimum requirements for freight loading spaces in the 20 largest cities in the United States, as well as the four most populous cities in North Carolina. The study provides insights on a topic that is little understood: how U.S. cities provide and manage infrastructure for urban freight delivery. This multi-methods study assesses the requirements for off-street and on-street loading spaces, drawing from quantitative and qualitative data collected from municipal zoning codes, planning documents, news stories, and interviews with local planners and transportation engineers. The findings indicate that requirements vary widely across the cities. While requirements for off-street loadings spaces are move prevalent, particularly for larger business, requirements for on-street loading spaces are less likely to be codified and depend heavily on the availability of curb space. This study provides a general overview of how freight loading spaces are provided and managed in larger U.S. cities and supports the need for improving the supply of freight loading spaces to meet the growing demand for urban freight deliveries spurred by e-commerce.

Discovering Potential Market for the Integration of Public Transportation & Emerging Shared-Mobility Services

In recent years, the advance of communication and information technology enables travelers to conveniently request, track, and pay for trips via mobile devices. This significant convenience promotes the emerging travel modes such as shared-mobility services including carsharing, bikesharing, ridesharing (like Uber and Lyft), and private shuttles (like Bay-Area tech shuttles). Shared-mobility owners have claimed that these new traffic modes will help reduce car ownership and promote the ridership of public transit, while transit agencies, often unsure of how to coexist with them, have concerns about the potential competition and potential extra traffic and associated congestion. These mixed opinions raise the urgent need to fully understand the potential supply-demand market so that we can cooperate with the services of public transit and shared mobility, and take the advantages of both. Motivated by this view, this project conducted a comprehensive data analysis to answer these two questions: Who are the potential demands with high potential to use intermodal services provided by such hybrid systems? Where and when are the supply gaps to integrate shared mobility and public transit services? To accomplish these research objectives, the project team draws from several data sources and approaches to conduct studies from both the demand and supply perspectives. The outputs of this project will increase the use of sustainable transportation modes, which may reduce urban congestion, emissions, and energy consumption. Thus, the success of this project will help establish an eco-friendly transportation system.


Evaluation of the Operational Effects of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) through Microsimulation

Dr. Michael Hunter, Georgia Tech
Dr. Pruthvi Manjunatha, UF
Dr. Lily Elefteriadou, UF

Proper evaluation advanced traffic control strategies integrating Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) requires accurate representation of these emerging technologies within the context of microscopic simulation, allowing for detailed evaluation of their operational and environmental effects. In this webinar we discuss 1. An evaluation of the microscopic simulator VISSIM’s ability to simulate CAVs; 2. Development of a comprehensive simulation extension to represent CAVs in VISSIM; 3. Integration of emissions modeling to calculate real-time energy and emission estimates
