Transportation and Communities 2018: Academy Edition ● September 13 - 14, 2018 at Portland State University
In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we’re trying something a little different. Instead of brief sessions that introduce you to a topic– we will be offering fifteen half-day workshops that focus on skill building and providing the tools to apply the latest research to practice. These will be hands-on, immersive learning experiences in a small classroom setting. Hosted by the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University. Supported by our U.S. DOT grant-funded consortium: the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC).

⇨CLICK HERE TO REGISTER⇦ This event is a la carte, and pricing is per workshop. You may attend as few as one, or as many as four workshops. Questions? Contact us at asktrec@pdx.edu.  Let us know if you’re a student interested in volunteering, and we’ll be in touch later this summer.
  • Half-Day Workshop (general admission): $95
  • Half-Day Workshop (student rate / elected government officials rate): $50

Arthur C. Nelson is the PI for such NITC projects as "Do TODs Make a Difference?" and "National Study of BRT Development Outcomes." These reports have led to more than a dozen manuscripts that have been published, accepted for publication, or in review. They have also been featured in webinars, press conferences, news media outlets, and academic and professional conferences. Nelson pioneered the genre of research that applies economic base tools to assess the outcomes to transit investment over time with respect to changes in the number and share of:  jobs by sector with respect to type of system and distance from stations; jobs by wage category with respect to type of system and distance from stations; and population, households, householders by age, and housing by tenure with respect to type of system and distance from stations.
