Road Congestion Busting
Road Congestion is a drag on the economy, on the roads, and even on quality of life. Smart Cities, regions, and states know that adding more capacity is not always the solution.
Transportation Demand Management (TDM) is a powerful tool to address road congestion. It often reduces vehicle miles traveled and the associated greenhouse gas emissions and petroleum use, too. StreetLight InSight® provides powerful analytics to help guide discussion and expenditures for TDM, and to measure the effectiveness of policies and programs put in place. You can use StreetLight InSight to:
Understand the dynamics of personal and commercial vehicle trips to determine how freight and personal movements impact transportation behavior.
Analyze the impact of road congestion (and of new policies) on total trip travel time, not just speed, on a particular segment.
Analyze the causes of road congestion on a given road segment. Is it due to short trips? Long trips? Meandering trips? Trips that share the same origin or destination?
