Project Details


Strategic Plan for Advanced Travel at CMAP: CADRE Selection Strategic Plan for Advanced Travel at CMAP: CADRE Selection This proposal is being submitted to nominate Professor Ram M. Pendyala of Arizona State University to serve on the Cadre of Experts that will develop a Strategic Plan for Advanced Travel Modeling for the (CMAP). Dr. Pendyala teaches courses and conducts research in multimodal transportation systems planning, activity-based travel behavior modeling, time use and activity pattern analysis, freight and passenger travel demand forecasting, travel survey methods, microsimulation approaches, and the application of advanced econometric and statistical methods for transportation policy analysis. His expertise lies in the study of sustainable mobility management strategies, analysis of public transportation systems including bus and rail technologies, and modeling the land use, transportation, energy, and air quality impacts of a wide range of transportation policies and technology solutions including pricing-based strategies. Dr. Pendyala has conducted more than $5 million in sponsored research for a variety of government agencies in these topic areas. Prior to joining ASU in Fall 2006, he served for 12 years as a transportation faculty member and 6 years as graduate programs coordinator at the University of South Florida Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in Tampa. He has also served as a visiting professor in Vienna, Austria and is regularly invited by universities, research institutes, and public agencies around the world to give seminars and write resource papers related to his areas of expertise. In particular, Dr. Pendyala has been leading international groups of researchers in analyzing activity-travel behavior characteristics and developing state-of-the-art activity-based microsimulation models of travel demand. Dr. Pendyala has advised more than 50 graduate students who are now employed in leading government agencies, private consulting firms, and academic institutions.
