TRB Pedestrian Committee Official Web Page
The Transportation Research Board Pedestrian Committee (TRB committee number ANF10) is concerned with research on pedestrians and pedestrian facilities that will provide safe, comfortable, and efficient walking environments along sidewalks, along and across roadways, and connecting to other modes of transportation. The Committee addresses the planning, design, operation, and maintenance of roadways as they affect use of public rights-of-way by pedestrians. The Committee aims to integrate pedestrian considerations into broader transportation issues.
This Committee is chaired by Robert Schneider of the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.
The Pedestrian Committee interacts and collaborates with a number of subcommittees:
|Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Analysis||To identify and advance research related to safety and/or bicycle and pedestrian crashes||Safety Data, Research, and Analysis||Shane Turner|
|Bicycle and Pedestrian Data||To develop standardized national data structures that incorporate non-motorized users||Highway Traffic Monitoring||Liz Stolz|
|Health and Transportation||To identify, advance, and publish research and information to expand and improve current understanding and evaluation of the health impacts of federal, state, regional, and local transportation policies, procedures, and actions||Environmental Justice in Transportation||Eloisa Raynault|
|Emerging Technologies and Personal Transportation||To explore emerging technologies and their relationship to roadway users, including pedestrians and bicyclists||Bicycle||Chris Cherry|
|Pedestrian Research||To identify pedestrian research needs/topics and develop research needs statements; locate organizations to fund and conduct pedestrian research; and track previous, ongoing, and upcoming research||Pedestrian||Joe Fish|
|Pedestrian and Bicycle University Education||To identify core competencies being taught; facilitate a network of faculty; and monitor research and evaluation related to curriculum development||Bicycle||Kristen Brookshire and Meghan Wieters|
|Pedestrian Papers||To lead the paper review process and develop the pedestrian program at the Annual Meeting||Pedestrian|
|Pedestrian Modeling and Simulation||This Sub-committee is concerned with research on pedestrian modeling and simulation that utilize either macroscopic or microscopic modeling approaches.||Pedestrian|
|Intersections Joint Subcommittee||Provide focus and a forum on current issues dealing with the combined aspects of intersection safety, design, and operations.||Operational Effects of Geometrics; Geometric Design; Access Management; Safety Data, Analysis, and Evaluation; Pedestrian; and Traffic Signal Systems.|
