Webinar: Ridesharing, Technology, and TDM in Campus Transportation: Lessons for Statewide and Metropolitan Planning
Several university campus transportation departments have been notably successful at reducing traffic and parking demand by using new ridesharing and transportation demand management (TDM) technologies and supportive polices to maximize the use of alternatives to driving alone.
Drawing conclusions from case studies of the experience of six leading university campuses, a recently released FHWA report, developed by Volpe, identifies innovative practices that universities have used to reduce auto traffic and parking at congested university campuses, and discusses how those practices may be applied in more complex regional or municipal transportation planning contexts.
In this webinar, the FHWA Office of Planning, Volpe, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will present an overview of research findings by the research team and highlights from the MIT case study on their experience with incorporating ridesharing technology and innovative TDM practices.
The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion with transportation planning practitioners about how these methods can be or are being applied in other regional and municipal contexts.

The presentations and panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer session, live and through a chat pod. If you have any questions about this topic, webinar, or about the broader FHWA ridesharing and TDM research series, please contact Lorrie Lau at email@example.com or 415-265-2589.
