Travel Time Reliability

Travel time reliability is a measure that's becoming increasingly important to public agencies, elected officials, and most importantly the traveling public. The reliability concept is less than a decade old and continues to be explored and advanced through research programs such as the Strategic Highway Research Program 2. During this session attendees will learn the history and current state-of-the practice of reliability, key concepts and performance measures, and a description of how reliability concepts can be (and will be) applied to mainstream traffic operations and planning activities in the near future.

The presenter, Brandon Nevers, has over 13 years of experience in transportation research, traffic operations and design, long-range planning, pedestrian safety, and parking. He is a senior researcher for three projects within the federally authorized Strategic Highway Research Program 2 related to network capacity and travel time reliability. He is also the Principal Investigator for NCHRP 3-98: Guidelines on the Use of Auxiliary Through Lanes at Signalized Intersections. He is a member of the Signalized Intersection Subcommittee of the Transportation Research Board’s Highway Capacity and Quality of Service Committee and is a Board member for the Washington DC Section of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.

The Kittelson team is also celebrating 25 years of service to the community this month. Immediately following the workshop, you are invited to join us for an open house in celebration of this milestone anniversary. There will be plenty of refreshments, food, and fun on hand for the celebration!
