2017 SF Bay Area ITE/ITS CA Joint Transportation Workshop
The San Francisco Bay Area ITE and ITS CA jointly hosted a transportation workshop on Connected Vehicle Technologies and Automated Driving.

This year, speakers were be representatives from international transportation technology companies, connected and automated vehicle industry, ITS industries, Metropolitan Transportation Commission, San Francisco County Transportation Authority, Valley Transportation Authority, and many others who will talk about the current exciting technology development status, on-line and time-dependent transportation models, land use models linked to the transportation models, traffic control systems, and the traffic data collection technologies. This is the first time that this workshop aims at the technology developments from many transportation data industries and automobile companies, and their implications to the ITE community.

2016 ITE SF Bay Area Modeling Workshop- Big Data and Transportation Modeling
Following the great success of our last seven Annual SF Bay Area ITE Transportation Modeling Workshops, with participants gathered from around the world, the San Francisco Bay Area ITE is organizing the 8th Annual Transportation Modeling Workshop on April 28, 2016. The theme of this workshop is “Big Data and Transportation Modeling”. The objectives of this seminar is to show what innovative transportation modeling tools are available to our engineers and planners in the transportation modeling industry, and how these tools can be applied to transportation planning/engineering projects.

2015 ITE SF Bay Area Modeling Workshop – Modeling for Sustainable Complete Streets/Multimodal Transportation Planning
The San Francisco Bay Area ITE Section will offer a one-day workshop on transportation modeling technologies. Following the great success of our last six Annual Transportation Modeling Workshops, with participants gathered from around the world, the San Francisco Bay Area ITE is organizing the Seventh Annual Transportation Modeling Workshop on April 29, 2015. The theme of this workshop is “Modeling for Sustainable Complete Streets/Multi-Modal Transportation Planning”. The objectives of this seminar are to show what innovative transportation modeling tools are available to our engineers and planners in the transportation modeling industry, and how these tools can be applied to transportation planning/engineering projects. This year, speakers are representatives from the international transportation modeling software development industries, UC Davis, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, and many others who will talk about the current modeling development status, meso-scopic modeling, land use models linked to the transportation models, traffic control systems and the traffic data collection technologies. Some presentations were made at the last TRB conference or will be presented at the future ITE conferences.

ITS Berkeley Tech Transfer – Completes Streets Planning and Design
Complete Streets are planned, designed, operated, and maintained to provide safe and comfortable travel for all users of all ages. Complete Streets provide for all modes of transportation, including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit vehicles, and motorists, as well as allow for emergency response, road maintenance, and goods movement. This course covers the planning and design of Complete Streets, including the history of Complete Streets; the policy environment for Complete Streets, particularly in the California legislative environment; how to integrate Complete Streets with the urban planning process; and how to design streets, intersections, crossings, and interchanges consistent with the Complete Streets approach.

Comprehensive Bicycle Planning and Design @ Portland State University
The field of bikeway planning is rapidly evolving. This course will bring you up to speed on the cutting edge in practice and research, offering valuable skills for your professional life. It will cover the fundamentals of bikeway planning and design through an intensive week of interactive classroom and field experience. Instructors will integrate transit access and connections, bridges, trail crossings, and other special features into discussions, while using project examples to highlight practical applications of the principles and techniques covered. Effective education and encouragement programs, including public involvement strategies, will also be discussed.
