Partner Event: 2021 World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research

Monday, August 9, 2021, 7:00am PDT to Wednesday, August 11, 2021, 5:00pm PDT

The World Society for Transport and Land Use Research (WSTLUR) promotes the understanding and analysis of the interdisciplinary interactions of transport and land use, offers a forum for debate, and provides a mechanism for the dissemination of information. The Society organizes the World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research. The first symposium was held in Whistler, Canada 2011, the second was held at Delft, The Netherlands in 2014, and the third took place in Brisbane, Australia in 2017. 

TREC is co-sponsoring the 2021 World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research (WSTLUR) to be held virtually August 9-11, 2021. The conference will feature over 100 papers, with authors from 30 different countries around the globe, networking opportunities, a dissertation competition, and some fun, interactive sessions. Keynote events include talks from Dr. Susan Handy, Distinguished Professor at University of California Davis and Dr. Juan Pablo Bocarejo Suescun, Associate Professor at the Universidad de los Andes, along with a panel discussion on Portland’s Urban Growth Boundary: Coordinating Transportation and Land Use at the Regional Scale.

Webinar: Data-Driven Mobility Strategies for Multimodal Transportation

Wednesday, September 15, 2021, 10:00am to 11:00am PDT


Multimodal transportation systems (e.g., walking, cycling, automobile, public transit, etc.) are effective in increasing people’s travel flexibility, reducing congestion, and improving safety.  Therefore, it is critical to understand what factors would affect people’s mode choices. With advanced technology, such as connected and automated vehicles, cities are now facing a transition from traditional urban planning to developing smart cities. To support multimodal transportation management, this study serves as a bridge to connect speed management strategies of conventional corridors to connected vehicle corridors.

The study consists of three main components. In the first component, the impact of speed management strategies along traditional corridors was evaluated. In the second component, the impacts of the specific speed management strategies, signal retiming and coordination, on transit signal priority (TSP) was studied. Finally, in the third component, the feasibility of using controller event-based traffic data for estimating multimodal signal performance measures was investigated. The research outcomes of this study will help decision-makers understand the data and infrastructure needs in supporting future multimodal planning, operation, and safety tasks.
