Oregon ITE April Luncheon
Date: Thursday, April 2nd, 2015
Time: 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Place: Kittelson & Associates, 610 SW Alder St, Portland, OR 97205
Join us at Kittelson for networking, good food and drink, and transportation talk! This month, Dr. Kelly Clifton will present at our April Luncheon on a topic that is of great interest to researchers and practitioners alike: trip generation. Register here.
Traditional data and methods used for trip generation have been under scrutiny for their lack of sensitivity to urban context and modes other than the personal vehicle. Recently, several studies have been conducted to find ways to adjust ITE's trip rates to account for these shortcomings, while at the same time promoting new data collection frameworks that can lend support for multimodal analysis in urban areas. This presentation will review these new contributions, including one study from the Portland, Oregon metro area that was sponsored by OTREC, Metro and several local communities, and a framework for future trip generation data collection and analysis.
Kelly J. Clifton is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Portland State University. Dr. Clifton conducts research and teaches courses in various aspects of transportation planning and policy, including: travel behavior, land use and transportation, physical activity and health, and travel survey methods. She is the Director of the Oregon Modeling Collaborative, a consortium of public and private agencies working to research, develop and apply integrated transportation modeling approaches. She is also a fellow in the Institute for Sustainable Solutions and the chair of the World Society for Transport and Land Use Research.
