Richard Margiotta will present a lecture on "Travel Time Reliability: What It Is and Why It Matters" on Dec.1 as part of the University Transportation Center, Georgia Transportation Institute Luncheon Seminar Series. A box lunch will be provided.

Abstract
Travel time reliability is a relatively new concept for the transportation profession. In this presentation, Dr. Margiotta will discuss:

  • how travel time reliability came into the transportation lexicon;
  • the various ways researchers have chosen to define and measure it;
  • data and modeling requirements; and
  • valuation of travel time reliability.

The presentation draws heavily on Margiotta’s own research as well as recent results from the SHRP 2 program.
