Title:Business and Commute Optimization System: Development and Denver-Based Case Study
Principal Investigators:Caroline M. Clevenger, Mehmet E. Ozbek, and Moatassem Abdallah
University:University of Colorado Denver and Colorado State University
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-510
RH Display ID:150828
Keywords:continuing education, emission control systems, greenhouse gases, mixed use development, traffic congestion, transit oriented development


A primary outcome of the research will include expansion of the existing capabilities of the developed system, Business+ Commute Optimization System (BCOS), to enable businesses reduce their commute footprints. This system will a) identify the optimum employee commute plan and associated set of employee-specific personalized incentives, and b) quantify the resulting benefits, while taking into account individual employees' travel limitations (e.g. desired departure times), as well as business budget constraints. Findings are planned to lead to a series of publications that measure and quantify business commute factors and identify individual-specific commute incentives. Such results will prove critical for decision-makers seeking to minimize transportation-related emissions, and improve local and regional air quality
