Mitigating Traffic Congestion through Managing Demand

Mark P. Rossow, Ph.D, PE Retired

This online engineering PDH course articulates a framework for managing demand to improve the performance and efficiency of transportation systems. The framework consists of three elements: demand-side strategies, travel choices, and application settings. An illustration of the framework might be a large urban hospital (the application setting) which causes traffic congestion when employees’ work shift ends. Introduction of flextime for the employees (a demand-side strategy) would cause employees to alter their travel departure times (affect their travel choices), thus lessening congestion. The course describes dozens of strategies and shows how they can affect a wide array of travel choices in many different application settings. Numerous real-life examples are given.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
