Transportation Planning Information Exchange

The FHWA/FTA Transportation Planning Capacity Building Program (TPCB), has established a quarterly webinar series titled the Transportation Planning Information Exchange. These webinars are intended to improve transportation decision-making by providing a convenient program of training, technical assistance, and capacity building for State, local, regional and tribal governments, transit operators, stakeholders, and community leaders.

Upcoming Webinars

Webinar Date Time
Local Methods for Modeling, Economic Evaluation, Justification and Use of the Value of Travel Time Reliability in Transportation Decision Making
 View Description 
As part of the SHRP2 Tuesdays Webinar Series, TRB will conduct a webinar on September 9, 2014, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that will highlight the process used to develop, justify, apply, and assess the use of travel time reliability in project evaluation and decision making. The objective of SHRP 2 Reliability Project L35 is to build support for investments in operations through pilot testing an economic value of travel time reliability in the modeling and business processes at a metropolitan planning organization (MPO) and a state department of transportation (DOT) in order to determine whether introducing reliability into the decision making process changes project priorities.
September 9, 2014 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. 
Scenario Planning Applications for Freight Transportation
 View Description 
Due to high interest, a second webinar focused on freight scenario planning will be held by the Federal Highway Administration. Registration for the first webinar scheduled for July 30th from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET is already full, so people interested in attending the Freight Scenario Planning webinar who have not already registered for the July 30th webinar should register for this webinar. The presentation content for both webinars is identical; registrants only need to attend one of the webinars. This webinar, led by the FHWA Office of Freight Management & Operations and the FHWA Office of Planning, will explore the use of scenario planning as a way to inform freight infrastructure and supply chain management activities and investments. Scenario planning is an analytical process that can help public and private sector transportation professionals plan for the future and better understand what changes might happen in the future. Agencies are increasingly finding value in applying the principles of scenario planning to freight transportation planning and decision-making.
September 11, 2014 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. 
Incorporating Reliability Performance Measures in Operations and Planning Modeling Tools (L04)
 View Description 
As part of the SHRP2 Tuesdays Webinar Series, TRB will conduct a webinar on September 16, 2014, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that will demonstrate the incorporation of travel time reliability into micro- and meso-simulation models and other model systems. The models include first-generation software that potentially can be integrated into many simulation packages in order to address travel time reliability. The objective of SHRP 2 Reliability Project L04 is to address travel time reliability in planning and operations models to account for factors that cause non-recurring congestion. The associated report and guide provide practical means of generating realistic reliability performance measures using simulation models. These publications also explain how to address reliability with regards to demand and supply considerations and how to deal with reliability factors, such as incidents and breakdown in flow, which should be treated outside or inside certain types of models.
