Dr. Joyendu Bhadury (Bryan School) has received funding from the NCSU Institute for Transportation Research and Education for the project “Trip Making Patterns of NC’s University Students.” The lack of observed information on the travel behaviors of university students leads university student trips to not be well represented in travel demand models, the abstract notes, and very few surveys have been conducted to collect university student travel behavior in North Carolina. This project will provide valuable observed behavior data to allow transportation professionals to investigate and resolve on- and off-campus transportation problems more systematically and improve campus transportation planning and operations. It can also help advance transportation system modeling practice, such as university transportation models, MPO models, and even to improve the North Carolina Statewide Model.
