TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 37A: Guidebook for Measuring Performance of Automated People Mover Systems at Airports is designed to help measure the performance of automated people mover (APM) systems at airports.
The guidebook identifies, defines, and demonstrates application of a broad range of performance measures encompassing service availability, safety, operations and maintenance expense, capacity utilization, user satisfaction, and reliability.
The project that developed ACRP Report 37A developed the set of forms below that are designed t
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 674: Crossing Solutions at Roundabouts and Channelized Turn Lanes for Pedestrians with Vision Disabilities explores information related to establishing safe crossings at roundabouts and channelized turn lanes for pedestrians with vision disabilities.
Appendices B through N to NCHRP Report 674 were published as NCHRP Web-Only Document 160. The Appendices included in NCHRP Web-Only Document 160 are as follows:
â€¢ Appendix B: Long Lis
TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 95: Traveler Response to Transportation System Changes, Chapter 19 - Employer and Institutional TDM Strategies pair-uses wise comparisons to explore the relative importance of particular categories of TDM strategies, such as support versus incentives, as well as the particular strategies themselves, such as transit subsidy versus a high-occupancy vehicle parking discount.
TDM (transportation demand management or travel demand management) is a process that can encompass a variety of measures intended to influence travel choic
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Legal Research Digest 53: Liability Aspects of Bikeways explores the liability of public entities for bicycle accidents on bikeways as well as on streets and highways. The report also examines the federal laws that encourage the designation and use of bikeways; the elements of a claim in tort against a public entity for a bicycle accident, whether on a public street or some type of bikeway; defenses to bikeway accidents under tort claims acts and applicable to public entities; immunity for bicycle claims under some state recreational
TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 137: Improving Pedestrian and Motorist Safety Along Light Rail Alignments examines pedestrian and motorist behaviors contributing to light rail transit (LRT) safety and explores mitigating measures available designed to improve safety along LRT alignments. The report also includes suggestions to facilitate the compilation of accident data in a coordinated and homogeneous manner across LRT systems. Finally, the report provides a catalog of existing and innovative safety devices, safety treatments, and practices along LRT alignments. Appen
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 641: Guidance for the Design and Application of Shoulder and Centerline Rumble Strips explores the design and application of shoulder and centerline rumble strips as a crash reduction measure, while minimizing adverse effects for motorcyclists, bicyclists, and nearby residents.
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 612: Safe and Aesthetic Design of Urban Roadside Treatments explores recommended design guidelines for safe and aesthetic roadside treatments in urban areas. The report also examines a toolbox of roadside treatments designed to balance pedestrian, bicyclist, and motorist safety and mobility.
NCHRP Report 612 includes four appendices, three of which are available online. The fourth, Appendix C, is included with the report.
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 380: Applications of Illuminated, Active, In-Pavement Marker Systems (IPMs) explores the state of IPM technology, experiences with IPM applications, and potential IPM research needs.
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 616: Multimodal Level of Service Analysis for Urban Streets explores a method for assessing how well an urban street serves the needs of all of its users. The method for evaluating the multimodal level of service (MMLOS) estimates the auto, bus, bicycle, and pedestrian level of service on an urban street using a combination of readily available data and data normally gathered by an agency to assess auto and transit level of service. The MMLOS user's guide was published as[more]
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 500, Vol. 18, Guidance for Implementation of the AASHTO Strategic Highway Safety Plan: A Guide for Reducing Collisions Involving Bicycles provides strategies that can be employed to reduce collisions involving bicycles.
In 1998, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) approved its Strategic Highway Safety Plan, which was developed by the AASHTO Standing Committee for Highway Traffic Safety with
