    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationClass 17 Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design Multimodal Options for CSS 1
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationBasic movement Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design Origin Walk Transit Walk Destination Trips often use combination of modes, but almost all trips include walk segment 2
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationWhat is multimodal? Planning, Environmental Analysis and DesignPerson travel Goods movement• Walk • Truck• Bike • Railroad• Transit • Air• Personal motor vehicle • Water• (Water)• (Air) http://www.livablestreets.com/projects/sustainable-west-palm-beach/blog/category/multi-modal-transportation/ 3
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationWhy multimodal? Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Expands range of travel choices• Can increase total capacity• Can decrease adverse impacts• Increases mobility, accessibility• Permits different development styles 4
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationWhat places do we seek? Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design • Social places • People walking around • Evening life • Activity of interest • Attractive scenery • Variety • Excitement • More…? 5
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationCan streets make these? Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Ingredients – Places of interest – Attractive areas – Variety – Connections to off-street activity – High level of accessibility – Activity facing street or in right of way – Choice of modes • Walk • Bike • Transit • Drive 6
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationMultimodal and networks Planning, Environmental Analysis and DesignModal facilities• Part of modal networks• Part of multimodal system plans• Most modes on each facility (per type) – Pedestrian – Bicycle* – Transit (bus, rail*) – Personal vehicle – Heavy truck 7
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationMultimodal attractiveness Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design • Attributes • Convenience • Comfort • Travel time • Reliability • Ease of use • User cost • Safety, security • Aesthetics 8
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationMaking modes convenient Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design • Directly accessible • Convenient connections to buildings • Easy walk access • Intermodal integration • Well maintained • Proper design for intended use 9
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationMaking modes safer Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Open architecture (CPTED)• Separation from motor vehicle• Few movement conflicts• Adequate alignments, visibility• Effective lighting• Well maintained 1 0
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationAesthetic attractiveness Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Attractive materials• Compatible scale• Landscaping• Design compatible with surroundings• Well maintained 1 1
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationCreating communities Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Using transportation to create sustainable communities – Sense of place – Walkability – Modal choice – Compatibility – Support for local objectives – Supported by adjacent improvements 1 2
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationImprove attractiveness Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Walking – Most flexible mode – Distances < ¼ - ½ mile – Peds are sensitive to attractiveness, weather – Need sidewalks every urban block face – Prefer paved surfaces – Direct access to buildings – Direct links between places – Separate from motor vehicles – Sensitive to modal priorities 1 3
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationImprove attractiveness Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Bicycling – Wide range • skills and abilities • Trip types and lengths – Weather sensitive – Unpredictable behavior • Including obeying of traffic rules – Can function in street – Provide for on almost all streets • Varying treatments based on road type 1 4
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationImprove attractiveness Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Transit – Provides mobility for those unable to drive – Very sensitive to • Convenience • Travel time • Image – Success requires corridor density or major nodes – Needs good walk access – Priority vs. traffic is important – Can increase capacity in high travel corridors – Different services for different contexts, streets 1 5
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationImprove attractiveness Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design• Motor vehicles – Flexible – Weather insensitive – Often impacted by capacity limits – Adverse environmental impacts – Provides personal security – Can accommodate • Several passengers • Big loads – Requires extensive destination storage space 1 6
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationIntegration Planning, Environmental Analysis and DesignWith buildings, activity• Modes should support adjacent activity – Service – Compatibility • Space • Operating features • Appearance • Safety – Provide choices 1 7
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationGuidelines Planning, Environmental Analysis and DesignAchieving a multimodal system• Try to accommodate all modes• Omit those with no applicability• Provide “equal” priority• Provide intermodal connectivity• Consider adjacent activity needs as primary• Design for safety for all users 1 8
    • Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationDiscussion Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design1. What mode of travel should be on: – Joe Rout – Kimbrough? – College Main?2. What transportation design features would you use to make taking a bus to campus more appealing? – To you? – To others? 1 9
