New shared mobility services have become increasingly common and transportation agencies are beginning to integrate them into regional planning processes. This report provides three case studies of how metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and their regional partners are integrating shared mobility into regional multimodal transportation planning. The...

The Smart Work Zone Speed Notification (SWZSN) system aims to alleviate congestion, queuing, and rear end crashes in work zones by informing drivers of the speed of the downstream segment using a type of portable Intelligent Lane Control System (ILCS), Portable Changeable Message Signs (PCMS). The hypothesis was that drivers, knowing the speed up to 1 mile...

Louisiana Transportation Research Center (LTRC) has conducted a research study on LA 493 that provides evidence of damage to roadways caused by inundation. The evidence supporting this comes from three sources: a rod and level cross-section survey taken approximately one month prior to the first inundation event and subsequent cross-section surveys taken after...

Connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) technology is evolving at a rapid pace. Transportation agencies must work to develop policies and strategies that will be able to address the organizational, societal, legal and infrastructure impacts of the new technologies. This guide looks at current resources that address these issues, including legislation and federal...

This toolbox was developed to provide a summary of information that local agencies should be aware of to prepare for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs). The main goal of this toolbox is to assist local agencies in preparing for CAVs in the short term - 5 to 10 years. Since local agencies are not generally expected to have the resources to become test beds...

The National Academies–TRB Forum on Preparing for Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility was officially launched in early 2018 to facilitate evidence-based research needed to deploy these technologies in a manner and timeframe that informs policy to meet these long-term goals. The Forum has held five meetings since then, promoting discussion among its...

This study explores where automated decision-making systems impact transport activity, and how. More and more transport activity is influenced by algorithms. Automated decision-making is taking a hold in areas from health care and housing to media and mobility. In transport, algorithms are a core feature for services from public transport scheduling to routing...
