Default New study of peak urban travel released

Here is the executive summary:

http://www.ceosforcities.org/pagefil...artXSFINAL.pdf

Their most important point is that the current favored measures effectively ignore the effect that trip distances have on travel times, causing policy makers to focus too much on congestion relief and not enough on land use issues.

From a Pittsburgh-centric view, our ranking is a bit worse by this measure, from 47th out of 51 to 36th (lower is better). On the other hand, the study suggests we also have the opportunity to improve that considerably if we can reduce trip distances, as some cities have recently.
