Addressing Data Challenges for Bicycle Crash Analysis

Dr. Eleni Christofa

Dr. Christofa will visit Portland State University to present recently published research on bicycle crash rate and demand estimation. The title of her presentation is: “Addressing Data Challenges for Bicycle Crash Analysis.” This talk will present a bicycle crash analysis framework for estimating bicycle crash rates accounting for both bicycle and motorized vehicle exposure as well as overcoming the lack of bicycle count data.

Dr. Christofa will also be talking tomorrow (3/8/2017) on Transit Priority for Improved Person Mobility at the MassDOT Innovation & Tech Transfer Exchange Conference. This research that has been done in collaboration with Dr. Guler of Penn State identifies domains of application to achieve minimum person delay of dedicated bus lanes and pre-signals when implemented in isolation or combined with TSP.
