Title: Victoria Transport Policy Institute
Description: The Victoria Transport Policy Institute is dedicated to innovative research and analysis. Our goal is to develop practical tools for incorporating social and environmental values into transportation decision making. Much of our work involves describing, quantifying and evaluating transportation benefits, costs and equity impacts. Comprehensive analysis of these impacts is essential for good planning. Our research is among the most current available and has been widely applied. Our resources can help determine: - The full costs and net benefits of a plan or policy. - How costs are distributed. - How to effectively incorporate these impacts into the decision making process. - The net benefits of planning options, transportation demand management strategies, different travel modes, new technologies, and alternative fuels. - The full impacts of a road improvement or traffic calming program.
