What You Will Learn
  • Discover the advantages of responding to transportation problems through modification of travel demand characteristics.

  • Learn about information strategies and program: apps, ridesharing programs, marketing, and education.
     
  • Learn about pricing: the principles of peak period road and parking pricing.

  • Develop a step-by-step sequence for determining if capacity increase is justified.
Travel demand is the result of individuals and firms making both locational and travel decisions. Those travel decisions include whether, where, and when to travel, what mode to use, and what route to take. Because the experiences of the transportation system can vary depending on the time of day and patterns in origin and destination, the system is well suited to interventions that use existing capacity more efficiently.
