Design for People on Bikes: New "Rethinking Streets" Guidebook
We're excited to announce the publication of a new visual design guide, "Rethinking Streets for Bikes" - available for free download later this month. Focused on case studies in the U.S., the guidebook will make it easier for North American city officials to design streets with bikes (and the people on them) in mind. There is a growing demand for better infrastructure and fewer barriers to biking and other forms of space-efficient, micromobility. To fill this gap, NITC researchers Marc Schlossberg and John Rowell of the University of Oregon, Roger Lindgren of the Oregon Institute of Technology, and Dave Amos of UC Berkeley created this new public resource.
NITC at TRB 2019: A Photo Recap
Our researchers contributions to this year's annual TRB meeting were significant. Together, NITC researchers and students are increasing access to opportunities, improving multi-modal planning, and advancing innovation to address the challenges of transportation mobility and equity in the 21st century. We've pulled together some of the best shots of NITC researchers at TRB 2019. In March, TRB will release material from the conference—posters, slide decks, presentations and more—and when they do, we'll gather the NITC research materials together in one place for you to peruse.

Transportation Undergraduate Research Fellowship (TURF) at Portland State University

For the second year in a row, we're offering an exciting research fellowship for students interested in transportation. Spend a summer at Portland State University as a Transportation Undergraduate Research Fellow (TURF). This 10-week program is open to current undergraduate students from any university who are interested in learning more about transportation engineering or planning research. Hosted at PSU, selected students will given a $7,500 stipend and be paired with a faculty mentor from either the College of Urban and Public Affairs or the Maseeh College of Engineering & Computer Science.
