Abstract Adaptive reuse is an alternative to a building’s end-of-life where its function is extended to serve another purpose. Many studies suggest that adaptive reuse is more sustainable than typical demolition and new construction in terms of environmental, social, and economic impacts. However, these claims are qualitative in nature and are limited to analyses at the project scale. This paper presents a methodology based on Input-Output (IO) models for examining economic and energy impacts of...

Abstract Subnational incentives to adopt zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) are critical for reducing the external economic damages posed by transportation to air quality and the climate. Few studies estimate these damages for on-road freight, especially at scales relevant for subnational policies requiring cross-border cooperation. Here, we assess the damages to US receptors from emissions of air pollutants (PM2.5, NOx, SO2, NH3), and greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O) from medium and heavy duty freig...

Municipal transit agencies are exploring integrations with ridesourcing vehicles to extend the reach of their fixed-route transit networks. Ridesourcing integrations have been piloted in some regio...

Abstract Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models have been used extensively for assessing the economic impacts of transportation policies and projects. Most freight-related applications use stylistic representations of trade flows, commodity flows, and vehicles flows. This study proposes a framework that migrates from a stylistic CGE modelling approach by explicitly linking empirically calibrated transportation models of border crossing activities to a CGE model of the global economy. The fr...

The primary objective of this paper is to determine the role of port efficiency in determining a port’s associated maritime transport costs using direct and disaggregate measures, such as average truck turnaround time, berth utilization, and vessel turnaround time. Ports are complex places difficult to characterize by a single measure of efficiency. Port efficiency is better assessed by measuring the performance of a port’s constituent activities. Prior studies on port efficiency have primarily ...

This paper deals with the pricing and allocation problems that arise in a mobility permit (MP)-based traffic management system on single bottleneck roadways. We present a permit endowment (pricing and allocation) mechanism and address the efficiency of such a system in mitigating the congestion at bottlenecks under users’ preferences and incomplete information setting. To perform an efficient permit allocation, we develop a mixed-integer programming (MIP) optimization model restrained by user pr...

There is some understanding that autonomous vehicles will disrupt public sector policies and the existing transportation industry, but this disruption is often loosely defined and tends to ignore h...

Border crossings are vital to a nation’s safety and security as well as its economic competitiveness. On one hand, borders are intended to ensure the safety of a nation against external threats; on...

Random-utility-based multiregional input–output (RUBMRIO) models are used to study the impact of changes in transport networks or spatial economies on interregional or international trade patterns. These models rely on elastic prices algorithms to estimate trade flows. According to the literature, two different RUBMRIO elastic prices algorithms exist: an original algorithm that was the subject of theoretical investigation, and a modified algorithm that has been commonly used in practice. The ori...

The two largest cities in Ecuador each implemented three bus rapid transit (BRT) corridors from 1995 to 2013. The projects present similar characteristics, and thus a unique opportunity to analyze ...
