The interdisciplinary team in the iTram group includes faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students from Transportation, Economics, Agriculture and Resource Economics, Operations Research, and Statistics. The research conducted by iTram uses a variety of techniques, including optimization, statistics and econometrics, simulation, agent-based methods, artificial intelligence, Geographic Information Systems, and advanced survey techniques. These methods can be applied to analyze systems ranging from a single facility to a large region, and assess the consequences of policies ranging from short-term operations and pricing decisions to long-term investment and ownership choices. In previous research, the iTram research group has studied freeway operations strategies, incidence management policies, advanced traveler information systems, road pricing and distance-based use fees, vehicle ownership choices, freeway capacity expansion, private roads, alternative urban growth scenarios, and multimodal investment criteria.
