Dear Reader, I invite you to savor these pages and indulge on the flavors of life within these stories. I invite you to have a large appetite, to bite off more than you can chew, but to finish anyway. I invite you to always leave room for vulnerability, resilience and change, but with joy as the main course. Maybe you’re like me, finally graduating after a victory lap, stumbling on the pressure cooker of, “what’s next”. “Next” is taking risks. Welcoming failure. Knowing when to ask for help. Never settling. Having the courage to try new things. And ...

Can Ridehailing Deliver Equity? Lessons For New Mobility Planning, Anne Brown May 2019

Can Ridehailing Deliver Equity? Lessons For New Mobility Planning, Anne Brown

TREC Friday Seminar Series

Modes including ridehailing, bikeshare, and e-scooters offer the potential to revolutionize how people travel. But as cities and agencies work to integrate these new services into the existing transportation landscape, the equity implications of these modes remain murky.

The research highlights both the promise of new mobility services and the remaining obstacles to delivering equitable access. Findings yields implications for policies that cities and planners can advance to ensure that new travel modes ...


Preferred Pharmacy Networks: Health Care Savings On The Margins, Ashley Swanson May 2019

Preferred Pharmacy Networks: Health Care Savings On The Margins, Ashley Swanson

Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative

While policymakers have talked a lot recently about finding a comprehensive fix for escalating health care costs, such as Medicare-for-all, many economists have been exploring the possibility that the answer for excessive health care spending may rest instead in series of smaller adjustments. This issue brief presents research on one such small fix: preferred pharmacy networks. This is a relatively new tool whereby health insurers aim to steer consumers to lower cost “preferred” pharmacies, where insurers are able to negotiate lower drug prices. The research concludes that preferred pharmacy contracting results in a roughly 1 percent decrease in Medicare Part ...

Webinar: Engaging Youth To Choose Car-Free Mobility, Autumn Shafer May 2019

Webinar: Engaging Youth To Choose Car-Free Mobility, Autumn Shafer

TREC Webinar Series

Today’s youth are tomorrow’s riders, bikers, walkers, voters, and transportation planners. As more transit agencies begin to offer free fare passes to public middle and high school students, it is important to have good communication strategy in place to encourage transit usage so they don't miss out on the potential to affect behavior change.

Thus, transit agencies need to develop age-appropriate messaging strategies and tactics that promote youth car-free mobility.

This webinar will present results from a NITC research project that sought to create and evaluate communication messaging that fosters more positive attitudes, intentions, and behaviors related ...

Making The Seemingly Impossible Project Real Through Local Improvement Districts, Andrew W. Aebi May 2019

Making The Seemingly Impossible Project Real Through Local Improvement Districts, Andrew W. Aebi

TREC Friday Seminar Series

The planning process identifies community needs but often needs the creative use of financial leverage to make those projects a reality on the ground. Timing is important on Local Improvement District (LIDs), and the window of opportunity is often short.

For Portland's Bureau of Transportation, managing the public's desire for streets in good condition with room to walk and bike safely and accommodating freight movement and population growth can be a tall order. Add in the need to work with water, sewer and underground utilities, and things get complicated.

When needs exceed resources, smart strategies can help fill ...

Development Of The Chester Fritz Library (Cfl) Peer Research Consultants Program, Karlene T. Clark, Holly Gabriel

Librarian Posters and Presentations

There has been a steady decline in the number of reference questions asked at central reference desks at academic libraries across the United States. The reference desk at the University of North Dakota’s main library has also seen a steady decline in reference questions. In an effort to make better use of professional librarians’ time and energy, library staff are starting a pilot program in Fall 2019 to use undergraduate peer research consultants (PRC’s) to staff the reference desk, thereby freeing up the reference librarians to do more library instruction and outreach. The PRC’s will be undergraduate ...

In this lecture, Goncalo will focus on the research that is being done at TU Delft, a leading university in automated vehicles’ (AVs) impacts research, focusing on urban areas and how mobility, and even the city itself, can change with fully-automated vehicles.
