Level of Transit Stress; A Transit Network Analysis

Evaluating deterrents for the public to ride transit has brought us to the first phase of measuring the level of transit stress.  Determining where transit stops are located, how frequently the transit stops are served, amenities the stops may have, how on-time the transit vehicles are at your stop.  Established criteria is simply the first take at analyzing how stressful it may be to ride transit and helps us to identify places to improve, re-engineer, conduct a broader study to evaluate and enhance current transit infrastructure.  The end goal is lessen the level of transit stress.  Web s

Identifying network segments for potential mitigation for vehicle-based tsunami evacuations

The growing size and cost of vehicular evacuations to evade hazards in recent decades have drawn attention to a need for more comprehensive evacuation planning. Transportation modeling research focused on road network vulnerability and evacuation potential has increased the available knowledge for decision makers. Despite this need and the availability of new methods and tools for assessing evacuations, most work focuses on hypothetical or simplified networks, or relies on pre-determined route assessments.
