Sustainable Transportation Performance Measures

COURSE NO: C04-044
Sustainable Transportation Performance Measures
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how to incorporate environmental, economic, and social sustainability into transportation decision-making through the use of performance measures. It provides examples of best practices in sustainable transportation performance measurement that are being applied across the U. S.


Performance measures allow decision-makers to quickly observe the effects of a proposed transportation plan or project or to monitor trends in transportation system performance over time. While many transportation agencies use performance measures as part of planning and project development, their use to promote sustainability has historically been limited. However, more and more agencies have begun to measure the ability of their systems to help protect natural resources, improve public health, strengthen energy security, expand the economy, and provide mobility to disadvantaged people.


This 4 PDH online course is intended for civil and transportation engineers concerned with the design, operation, and maintenance of transportation systems.
