A Prototype Decision Support System for Optimally Routing Border Crossing Traffic Based on Predicted Border Crossing Times

The economic vitality of the “Golden Horseshoe”, a densely populated and industrialized region which encompasses Southern Ontario, Canada and parts of New York State including the Buffalo-Niagara Region, is heavily dependent upon the ability to move goods freely and efficiently across the Canadian-US border. This highlights the critical importance of the Niagara Frontier International border crossing, one of North America’s busiest portals for travel and trade. This study had two primary objectives.

Energy Savings from Transit Passes: An Evaluation of the University at Buffalo NFTA Transit Pass Program for Students, Faculty, and Staff

The University Transportation Research Center – Region 2 supported a study entitled “Connections Beyond Campus: An Evaluation of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority – University at Buffalo Transit Pass Program”.

Field Methods for Determining Lead Content in Bridge Paint Removal Waste

The removal of paint from bridges and other structures is a significant issue facing transportation agencies because of the presence and potential for release of lead and other contaminants upon disposal. A large percentage of the bridges are reaching a critical level of deterioration, resulting in management issues for paint waste. The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) applies a conservative approach by assuming all waste generated from bridges previously painted with lead-based paint (LBP) is hazardous.

Enhancing Resource Coordination for Multi-Modal Evacuation Planning

This research project seeks to increase knowledge about coordinating effective multi-modal evacuation for disasters. It does so by identifying, evaluating, and assessing current transportation management approaches for multi-modal evacuation planning. The research increases equity by identifying strategies for evacuation of all residents, including carless residents during a disaster.

New York in the New World Economy-I-90 Corridor

16. Abstract The I-90 Corridor in upstate New York is a classic example of the de-industrialization of the Northeastern United States. With few exceptions, all counties along the corridor have experienced marked declined in manufacturing employment over the past three decades. While the service and FIRE have helped to absorb some of this decline in employment, the loss of manufacturing represents a decline in the economic “base” of the I-90 corridor.
