The University of Toronto Transportation Research Institute, in  collaboration with the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies, is offering two back-to-back courses designed to provide participants with knowledge of key concepts and best practices related to public transit service planning and technology.

The first course, SCS 3378 Public Transit Planning & ITS (dates to be confirmed), provides an overview of key concepts and best practices related to transit planning, network and service design, service standards, transit and land use, and the application of ITS technologies.

The second course, SCS 3379 Public Transit Modelling (dates to be confirmed), provides a complementary but more focused and advanced exploration of tools that can be used for forecasting demand at both the system and route levels, transit assignment, and microsimulation-based analysis. The courses will be taught by leading transit planning researchers and practitioners and will provide a balanced perspective on transit systems planning and ITS, including both state-of-the-art techniques and practical perspectives.

Detailed course information and registration to come.
