Sustainable Transportation Performance Measures
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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Transit accessibility
- Bicycle and pedestrian mode share
- Vehicle miles traveled per capita
- Carbon intensity
- Mixed land uses
- Transportation affordability
- Distribution of benefits by income group
- Land consumption
- Bicycle and pedestrian activity and safety
- Bicycle and pedestrian level of service
- Average vehicle occupancy
- Transit productivity
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Sustainable Transportation Performance Measures” which is based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency document, “Guide to Sustainable Transportation Performance Measures,” EPA 231-K-10-004, August, 2011.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this EPA publication.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
