I am pleased to announce that the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting will host the first in-person meeting of the Transport Accessibility Manual Working Group.
Transport Accessibility Manual Working Group
Marriott Marquis, Mint (M4)
One of the key problems is what to value when investing in transport or regulating land development. Accessibility — the ease of reaching valued destinations — connects transport and land use, considering both how easy it is to move and where things are located. While many planners know how to measure this, many don’t, and all could benefit from standardizing application to best practice. To that end, a working group would develop such a standard, which would clarify topics like how to measure, how to compute, how to present, and what to consider in terms of accessibility.
