The University of Toronto Transportation Research Institute offers 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, Public Transit Planning & ITS (August 21-22, 2019), 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, Public Transit Modelling (August 23, 2019), 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.
