Introducing ITE's New Transit and Traffic Impact Studies State of the Practice

Thank you

This webinar will introduce the soon-to-be released, ITE informational report, Transit and Traffic Impact Studies State of the Practice, prepared as a collaborative effort over a period of several years by a project committee of the ITE Transit Standing Committee of the Complete Streets Council. The report is intended to fill a major gap in the area of addressing transit service in site traffic impact studies and the findings may have equal applicability to other types of transportation studies as well.

During the webinar, presenters, also primary contributors of the report, will delve into how the report will help local jurisdiction staff and transportation consultants who are responsible for scoping the Traffic Impact Studies to: 1) develop the scope of work describing the issues to be addressed; 2) identify the metrics and thresholds to be used in the analysis; and 3) write the local agency policy and guidelines that practitioners must follow in conducting these studies.
