Event Description

A yearlong study identified multiple opportunities to promote adoption of multi-modal, sustainable transportation alternatives in the City of Syracuse. The study evaluated the feasibility of developing, implementing, growing and promoting three urban mobility systems: 1) Human-Powered Mobility through enhancing walkability and bikeability in strategically targeted areas; 2) Sharing Economy in the form of sharing of bikes and electric vehicles; and 3) better integration with existing regional Public Transportation services. A brief overview of the results and recommendations will be presented by Dr. Tarek Rakha, assistant professor of architecture at Syracuse University, who led the team that performed the study. The presentation will be followed by an exhibition of the findings, including public engagement for feedback and assimilation of commentary in the final report.
The study, which was funded in part by NYSERDA and NYSDOT, was conducted by a multidisciplinary team of students, faculty, staff members and professionals, including individuals from Syracuse University’s School of Architecture, College of Engineering and Computer Science, SyracuseCoE, Barton & Loguidice (B&L), Clean Communities of Central NY, Downtown Committee of Syracuse, and Hitachi Consulting. Project advisors included Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council (SMTC), CENTRO, Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board, and the City of Syracuse.
