Developing a New Theoretical and Analytic Framework to Simulate the Transportation and Land Use Systems of Rural and Small Urban Areas

The objective of TRC Signature Project 1i is to advance transportationand land use analysis and modeling techniques for rural and small urban areas. The goals are to adapt existing behavioral theories and statistical methods, much of which have been created for large urban regions, as well as develop new ones to examine travel-related behaviors, evaluate transportation and land use policies, and facilitate long-term planning. To help achieve these goals, Project 1i includes research activities on several fronts. The subject of residential location choice modeling is where most of the effort is being made. Research in this area includes extending existing location choice, residential mobility and accessibility work in the Puget Sound Region and developing new models in Vermont and Northern New England. Project 1i also has a focus on non-motorized transport modes and their roles in rural built environments. The intersection of physical activities, public health, and land use and transportation systems is being explored in the rural context. Lastly, in the area of integrated transportation and land use modeling, the PI serves in an advisory role to Signature Project 1b and seeks out collaborative opportunities with those involved in this research.
