Transit Network Design: An Interactive Short Course

April 12 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

 

 

 

REGISTER TODAY! Space is limited!

LPPANS is offering a Transit Network Design interactive short course. The course will be fee-based. More details soon. An early course description is below:

“Transit Network Design: An Interactive Short Course” is designed to give anyone a grasp of how network design works, so that they can form more confident and resilient opinions about transit proposals.

The course is ideal for people who interact with transit planning in their work but don’t necessarily do it themselves — including land use planners, urban designers, developers, traffic engineers, sustainability advocates, transit employees of all kinds, and people who work on transportation or urban policy generally.

The course is a built around a series of exercises where students work together to design transit networks for a fictional city, based on its geography and a set of cost limitations. The exercises let students learn the basic tools and materials by working with them to develop creative solutions to a series of planning problems. You’ll remember what you learn in this course because you’ll have discovered it yourself, and formed your own insights about it.

Issues covered include network design, frequency, right-of-way, basic operations costing, and interactions with urban form. About 70% of class time is in interactive exercises, while most of the rest consists of group discussion based on the results of the interactive work.
