Moreover, compared to traditional transport modes (e.g., bike, car, bus and train), more options (e.g., electric/autonomous/connected/shared vehicle, on-demand shuttle and e-scooter) are emerging to provide solutions to unsolved problems as well as to post new challenges in planning for their impacts on the demand for urban transport. It is however necessary to revisit the essentials of urban transport planning to understand the effective use of digital data and new technologies, and how they can be used for providing smarter mobility solutions. Especially, the COVID-19 related changes to transport have highlighted the need for innovative mobility solutions. This short course will provide transport researchers and planners with basic knowledge of transport planning process, as well as major innovations and changes at the digital age with potential to address current issues. Real case studies worldwide will be shared with audiences as references for modern urban transport planning.
By the end of this course you will appreciate how:
- Traditional methods are applied to transport planning
- Modern technology based developments have led to change in how transport planning has been done over the last several decades
- Trends in society, environment and technology are likely to impact mobility, transport demand changes and supply
- Transport estimates need to reflect above changes, how transport models need to be adapted
- Innovative approaches can improve urban mobility and reduce the overall cost
What is unique about this course?
- You will learn more about Designing Urban Transport Planning
- You will gain an in-depth understanding of the application of Smart Mobility and new technologies in Transport Planning
- You will learn from real-life applications in cities around the world
- The course is delivered by experts conducting applied research on how infrastructure and social behaviour intersect to ensure more liveable cities and regions
Who should take this course?
Transport planners, professionals in the urban transportation sector and students interested in transportation planning would find this course useful to learn about tools and methods in implementing smarter mobility solutions.
Introductory course: introducing concepts, methods or tools to relevant students or professionals
Basic knowledge of Transport Planning and Data Analytics is preferred but not required.
This course is being delivered in conjunction with UOW SMART Infrastructure Facility, which is an international leader in applied infrastructure research helping to address the challenges of infrastructure planning and management both now and into the future.
