As part of the SHRP2 Tuesdays Webinar Series, TRB conducted a webinar on September 9, 2014 that highlighted the process used to develop, justify, apply, and assess the use of travel time reliability in project evaluation and decision making. Contact Reggie Gillum at RGillum@nas.edu
for instructions on receiving a copy of the recorded webinar.
The objective of SHRP 2 Reliability Project L35
is to build support for investments in operations through pilot testing an economic value of travel time reliability in the modeling and business processes at a metropolitan planning organization (MPO) and a state department of transportation (DOT) in order to determine whether introducing reliability into the decision making process changes project priorities.
