Active Transportation Benefit-Cost Tool

PI: Susan Handy,  Dillon Fitch,
Partnership with PeopleForBikes,  Mike Lowry (University of Idaho)
Caltrans,  2019-2021
The primary goal of this project is to develop a tool to evaluate the costs and benefits of active transportation projects as a part of Caltrans ATP project evaluation. We will build the tool for the specific purpose of ATP project comparison, but also serve as a tool for cities and counties to use to compare projects within their specific jurisdictions.

E-bicycling for short distance commutes

Dillon Fitch,  Susan Handy
2018-2020
Electric assisted bicycles (e-bikes) may reduce the barriers for shifting car trips to bike trips through improved perceptions of bicycling safety and increased destination accessibility. The researchers will explore factors influencing the likelihood of people shifting from driving to e-bicycling among employees (working faculty, staff, and graduate students) currently driving and or carpooling to the University of California, Davis. The researchers will also analyze the impact of JUMP dock-less electric bike share on e-bike commuting
