Integrated Design of Public Transit with Fixed Route and On-Demand Services: Practices and Lessons Learned

When: Wednesday, June 10,  2020, 12:00 - 1:30 PM ET

This webinar was developed by the ITE Transit Standing Committee.

Webinar Description:

This webinar will focus on planning for public transit in the new world of both fixed route and on-demand services, from considerations in transportation and investment planning to trends in Mobility as a Service and Mobility on Demand (Maas/MOD) to COVID-19 social distancing. This webinar will provide practices and lessons learned on multi-modal transportation, introduction of transportation network companies (TNC) and operation of Maas/MOD, and scaling transit based on demand and health concerns due to COVID-19.

Ehren Bingaman from Transpro Consult will highlight how to evaluate public transit services from a cost/benefit point of view to redesign bus services and on-demand services toward more valuable options for the public. Dan Berkovits from VIA will demonstrate how a TNC can plan for on-demand services in their city to improve the effectiveness of shared mobility and public transit. Andy Kosinski from Fehr and Peers and Chris Pangilian from Uber will highlight how data from various public transit and TNC services can be analyzed for a better multimodal trips overall.

This webinar will answer questions like: How should public transit planning be considered in infrastructure investments and reducing congestion? How do you balance fixed route and on-demand public transit in the decision making process? With shifts in travel patterns and behaviors from MaaS/MOD, how do transportation professionals plan for efficient and effective public transit? How do you adjust and plan for shifts in public transit and TNCs due to on-going COVID-19 social distancing?

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Name the principles of transit planning and how they apply to fixed route and on-demand services.

  • Explain adapting to sudden shifts in travel patterns, usage and behavior due to events like the introduction of Maas/MOD and COVID-19 social distancing requirements.
