25 Operationalizing Smarter Urban Mobility Systems Jerry Walters Fehr & Peers

26 Goals for Smarter Mobility Systems Decisions ASAP and better informed Better infrastructure design decisions Accurate impact assessments of land development User-oriented transit service plans and station designs Optimal sizing and integration of on-demand systems Tailored mobility services to optimize TDM effectiveness

27 Lab Work Bus reliability by route segment GHG, fuel use at traffic signals, roundabouts, stop signs Biases/inaccuracies in self- reported journey times

28 Field Work Transit ridership optimization Neighborhood parking management enforcement Bike station analytics: opportunity effectiveness assessment

29 Leading-Edge Work Express-lane bottleneck removal through GPS-calibrated simulation Regional traffic modeling through video and cell O/D identification Simulation of campus operation, expansion options

30 Next Gen Studies for Smart Mobility

31 Why and how people travel –Longitudinal measurement –Traveler demographics, market segmentation –O/D data vs built environment (D’s) –Models with complex AI objective functions Safety studies: –Road, signing and traffic conditions, driver attention

32 Next Gen Studies for Smart Mobility Operational improvements –Traffic queues and delays, simulation models –Cruising for parking –Traveler-weighted transit service level –Un-served markets Service availability, traveler characteristics of transit non-users Demographics of bike-share users, demographics and journey characteristics of non-users Comprehensive bicyclist route choice factors, including safety and security

33 Data Aggregation and Synthesis Needed

34 A Dozen Data Desires 1.Higher fidelity traffic flow data 2.Complete traveler O/D movements by all modes 3.Operating flow, interactions and incidents among modes 4.Longitudinal data: before/after stimulus 5.Land use and employment inventories by parcel 6.Over-the-net accessibility: time, cost, reliability, uncertainty * calibrate/ validate

35 A Dozen Data Desires 7.GPS verification of household and workplace surveys 8.Geo-correlation of travel surveys with built context 9.Transaction data to discern travel purpose 10.Consistent variable definitions to allow cross-walking data 11.Consistent sample rates by region 12.Open data from synthesizers via clients and from big actor data sources * calibrate/ validate
