The Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) is one of the most widely referenced documents in transportation planning and engineering. The 2010 edition includes a comprehensive analysis method for all major users of an urban street, including bicyclists and pedestrians. This webinar discusses the bicycle and pedestrian level of service methods that allow planners and engineers to analyze how urban streets meet the needs of nonmotorized users and to examine the effects of different improvement options. These analyses help us to efficiently distribute limited funds to the most effective improvements and to better communicate projects' benefits to the general public.
Learning objectives for this session include:
- How bicycle and pedestrian level of service analyses have evolved
- The background behind the HCM 2010 multimodal level of service methods for bicycles and pedestrians
- How to apply the HCM bicycle and pedestrian level of service methods and interpret results.
The session also includes a brief update on the joint ITE / APBP project, "Evaluation Tools for Complete Streets." The report of this project is being drafted; it covers several analysis tools including MMLOS.
