This project expanded an existing course to include these learning objectives: - learn principles of bicycle and pedestrian facility design - understand integration of bicycle and pedestrian... More > facilities within the right-of-way - understand basic transportation research and data collection methods - apply course content through project work The course focused on improving bicycle and pedestrian connects to the Portland State University campus. Teams of graduate and undergraduate students worked to develop a problem statement, identify stakeholders, recommend a public involvement process, develop evaluation criteria and alternative solutions, evaluate alternatives, select a preferred alternative, and create a grant application. The course received excellent reviews from the students, who found it useful to apply design and planning principles to a project. It provides a model for course expansion on related topics and can be shared and adapted for use elsewhere.< Less

Walking to school declined from 42% of 5-18 year olds in 1969 to 16% in 2001. The US Dept. of Transportation responded to this dramatic decrease with the Safe Routes to School program, emphasizing... More > infrastructure like sidewalks and crosswalks. Recent research shows that 2 of 3 children who live in walking distance but are currently driven to school do so because it is more convenient for parents. Policymakers and planners have few tools to estimate the effectiveness of SRTS interventions. We used a survey to better understand how SRTS interventions affect walking rates, identifying how parental attitudes and time constraints affect intervention effectiveness. This study compares results of stated preferences with on-the-ground evaluations of Portland’s SRTS program (collected concurrently for a separate project.) The project conducted a series of focus groups with parents at schools in the SRTS program. Focus groups results provide more in-depth information about parental attitudes and time constraints.< Less

The objective of this project was to develop a new trail planning curriculum and conduct a trail research project in the Portland metropolitan area. The curriculum was created for a community... More > service-based, University Capstone course at Portland State University, with Metro regional government as the community course partner. Project goals include: ● Expanded opportunities for undergraduate students to study trail design and planning for walking and bicycling; ● Practical application of knowledge to a planning project through research and data collection on trail use; ● Raising awareness of bicycle and pedestrian travel among students across disciplines; ● Fostering continuing involvement and interest in regional bicycle and pedestrian travel and trail development; ● Research on the amount and type of use of certain regional trails to demonstrate their value in the regional transportation network; and ● Creating a model for trail planning and research curriculum.< Less
