Renaissance presented a poster session at this year’s annual ITE meeting in Anaheim, California. Daniel Hardy, PE, PTE and Ed Mierzejewski, PE presented a poster that describes the why, what and how of multimodal accessibility based on our experience on a variety of projects.
Multimodal Accessibility, or MMA, is an emerging transportation planning framework that helps frame challenges and identify solutions. MMA measures transportation system performance in a manner that is mode-neutral, scalable to a wide range of geographies, and responsive to both land use and transportation system scenarios. Our poster described several case studies that demonstrate how MMA can help transportation planners diagnose challenges and identify and decide on solutions. Shaping our built environment around improved accessibility as a central consideration can foster cities that work, improving both day-to-day and long-term outcomes of the regions we inhabit.
