Transportation Policy Research Group
The Transportation Policy Research Group (TPRG) investigates solutions to complex problems raised by the interactions of transportation and land use. Working with state and local officials, the TPRG develops and applies analytic methods to better understand the ways that land use and transportation affect each other. Issues which the TPRG typically addresses include exploring methods of congestion relief, the use of multi-modal alternatives to reduce automobile dependency, and the impact of alternative land use patterns on the transportation system. The TPRG also examines land use and transportation impacts on the environment. With respect to these wide-ranging activities, the TPRG not only engages in analytical modeling and the development of policy alternatives, but also works with public officials and other stakeholders on policy implementation, ensuring that procedures developed in TPRG’s academic laboratory move smoothly from analysis to policy development and into practice. Most recently, TPRG has worked closely with the Maryland State Highway Administration and the Maryland Department of Transportation as well as relevant Federal government agencies on these and related issues.
