July 2013 TransCast
Dr. Laetitia Dablanc, IFSTTAR

Subject: The movement of goods through our cities presents many challenges. Dr. Laetitia Dablanc tells us in this transcontinental conversation that Europe has conducted much more research on urban freight transportation that the US. Laetitia was a Co-Principal Investigator on a recently-completed METRANS report titled, "Synthesis of Freight Research in Urban Transportation Planning." It's an eye-opening analysis of data gathered from around the world and provides an impressive list of findings and recommendations. Laetitia talks with Mat Kaplan from her office at the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks, where she is the Director of Research.

October 2011 TransCast
Dr. Peter Gordon, University of Southern California

Subject: Host Mat Kaplan talks with Dr. Peter Gordon. Gordon says, “If price does not ration, something else will.” He advocates the establishment of sophisticated and flexible toll lanes as a solution for urban highway congestion. Peter and several colleagues have modeled the effect of such measures on the Southern California freeway system. The results discussed in this extended edition of Transcast are fascinating, and may offer hope to both commuters and goods movement professionals.
