TCRP B-12A, Phase II [Completed]

Update the Traveler Response to Transportation System Changes Handbook (DOT-FH-11-9579)

  Project Data
Funds: $456,600
Research Agency: Richard H. Pratt, Consultant, Inc.
Principal Investigator: Richard H. Pratt
Effective Date: 10/5/1999
Completion Date: 12/31/2011

Phase I of TCRP Project B-12 began the process of updating the Traveler Response to Transportation System Changes Handbook, a document that was first published in 1977 and updated in 1981 by U.S.DOT. This document has been an invaluable tool for transportation professionals, providing readily accessible, interpretive documentation on the results obtained from various transportation improvements. A third edition is needed, because of significant changes since 1981 in the provision of transportation services.
This project will (1) conduct research on six additional topics specified by the project panel; (2) finalize research on five original Phase I topics: Park and Ride/Park and Pool, Busways and Express Bus, Transit Information and Promotion, Land Use and Site Design, and Parking Management and Supply; and (3) update information on the 12 original topics if new information becomes available during the project continuation.

The objective of this project is to build on the results of Phase I and to continue to develop an up-to-date and expanded handbook on the traveler response to transportation system changes.
