Greetings! I went to Greenville and Clemson, SC last week to report on an ATN Feasibility study we have been working on. Both communities were very receptive to the findings and interested in moving ahead. A summary can be found here. The completed report will be posted on the ATRA website in a few months, once it has been accepted. A news clip can be seen here.
Prior to Greenville, I attended the American Society of Civil Engineers International Conference on Transportation and Development. Wessel van der Pol of 2getthere gave a presentation titled Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Make Smart Cities Smart Cities. I gave one titled Personal Rapid Transit as an Alternative to Bus Service in Two Communities and another one titled A Light Rail, Group Rapid Transit, Personal Rapid Transit Comparison. These presentations will be posted on the ATRA website.
As always, enjoy reading!
