Summary of the highlights of the two videos What surprised me: Gridlock: (originated in NY)  9,000 vehicles before it becomes gridlocked.  20,000 (roughly) may be trying to navigate streets during evening rush hour  More people trying to reach certain destination and the capacity isn’t there  Professor on the video!!!  Problems with traffic going back to acient times – chariots – Juloiuous Ceasar insitutued policy insitudted policy only certain amounts of chariots entering the city and it worked  Building more roads – enough new lane miles to circle the globe 4 times  Adding roads is not the best solution o Paradox – 1960s – Dietrich Braess o People going as fast as they can from one place to another o More options (add a road) think you improved situation because you give another option however travel time actually increases o Suburbs to city, 2 possible routes  Traffic most likely split evenly  Add road that is in middle that is shorter distance  Clogged and drivers become worse off than before, takes longer o If you take away a road, it should reduce congestion o Remoth access to Broadway in Manhattan o 19 century planners knew it may hve been a problem  Property owners were upset road run through their orchards o Road common to ditherent ndnds paths, removing access from 47 to 42 , traffic flows better because you don’t have such a complex netowork o NYC dept. of transportation used data from taxi cabs to see if traffic was improving  From 2008-2009 after street closed, travel time improved by 7% because the drivers had fewer options. Nation on the Move:  Disruption in one place has a ripple effect  Each point of light that represent 7,500 people create a beautiful constellations across the country  4mm miles of road, 200,000 miles of rails, 5,000 aiports = largest tstnsportation network in history o 21 century challenge to keep it all moving  NYC biggest challenge (loom larger)  Powerful but aging transportation network  Manhattan o 23 square miles, 1.6 mm people, every weekday morning population nearly doubles with commuters  Plotted paths of every plane landing in major NY airports  Every 24 seconds = 3,500 flights a day  60,000 vehicles in NY bridges and tunnels in an HOUR  100,000 people travel to and from Manhattan by boat  Staten Island Ferry = 65,000 commuters per day  LIRR -> Penn Station / Grand Central  Subway = 5mm passengers per day city wide  Kingman, AZ o School busses = 26mm per day o 500,000 school bus drivers in nation o 165 miles per day for Mike Spuss in AZ o 1.5 mm miles per year in AZ (53 buses)  Chicago = rail hub of the US o More trains pass through this city than any other o Politicians had lobbied that all trains end there o Freight is biggest and slowest network of all o US has the worlds most efficient and profitable freight system – moving as much as 10x than Europe o “Humping” assorting the freight cars by remote control up a hill, then separates them by hand called pin-pulling  Air travel o Flight data image that illustrated how the airways connect every corner of the country. Astounding visual o O’Hare = flights per year. Flights every 34 seconds. o Baggage compartments (cargo) are most popular way to ship dead bodies for long distances. In box called an air tray  50 shipped from one state alone per day o Prisoners traveling for court hearings or penitentiaries, or deporting illegal aliens out of the country. o Commercial air travel at night during the 1920s  Paying farmers to light bond fires in fields to guide pilots  Replaced by network of gas beacons  1960s – modern radar replaced gas beacons o FAA  How they control a flight from take-off to 10,000 feet at regional control center, then one of 21 onroute centers across country. State of the art bunker in northern Virginia. Air traffic control system command center watching over the entire system.  Peak portion of the day is 5,000-6,000 active flights  Secret service, military, major airline, airport, shipping, NASA, listen to national flight plan every two hours a huge conference call  Airways are reaching max capacity  NexGen GPS cost = $160Billion o Navigate more directly, shorten route distance, frees up airspace for other aircraft to occupy = increase capacity o Will allow FAA to fly 1.3Billion passengers a year by 2021. 2x as many as today  Cars o 3 trillion miles /year o Greg Jordan’s time-lapse photography o Population has doubled and the number of cars has more than tripled since the country built highway system  Las Vegas o 2mm residence has 36mm visitors per year o Fish bowl in Nevada – Jacob Snow  Adaptive traffic signal control = 20% additional capacity  Allocating “green time” as a scare resource as efficiently as possible  LA o More cars than any other county in America = 12mm of them o Devastated neighborhoods and an incomplete freeway system o 64 hours average a year  3 days stuck in traffic o Mass transit may be the best hope  Investing in mass transit  Technology offers a lot of solutions, but we need to invest a lot of money and change old habits  In this week = 60 billion miles o 3mm late for work from traffic o 22,000 freight cars through “double hump” avg. 10 miles/hr o Dean Burry = 5,000 frequent flyer miles o 1 quarter of all flights will take off or land in the U.S. o Lose 45,000 pieces of luggage  Host = Yul Kwon
