Topic: An Activity-related Land Use Mix Construct and Its Connection to Pedestrian Travel
Land use mix is a central smart growth principle connected to active transportation. This presentation describes the indicators of local land use mixing and their association with pedestrian travel in Oregon’s Willamette River Valley. It argues that land use mix is a multidimensional construct reflected by the complementarity, composition, and configuration of land use types, which is positively linked to walk mode choice and home-based trip frequency. Findings from this study underline the conceptual and empirical benefit of analyzing this transportation-land use interaction with a landscape pattern measure of activity-related composition and spatial configuration.

Join us for our annual tradition: TRB Aftershock! Portland State University students will presenting posters on the transportation research they brought to the TRB Annual Meeting this past Januaryin Washington D.C. — the largest gathering of transportation professionals in North America.
This event is hosted by PSU's ITE student group, Students in Transportation Engineering & Planning (STEP), and sponsored by:
- Portland Chapter of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT)
- Transportation Reseach and Education Center (TREC)
Don't miss this exciting once-a-year event! Light refreshments and a cash bar will be provided.
Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) at Portland State University
TREC at PSU is home to the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI), and other transportation programs. TREC produces research and tools for transportation decision makers, develops K-12 curriculum to expand the diversity and capacity of the workforce, and engages students and young professionals through education.
