In recent years, both private sector freight shippers and carriers and public sector transportation agencies have worked to identify ways to increase the efficiency of the transportation system and more specifically freight movements. To achieve these increased efficiencies, both private and public organizations have entered into partnerships, including public-private, private-private, and public-public partnerships, that allow all participants to gain greater benefits than they would individually on their own. Many of these partnerships were formed to address high-cost needs. However, there are also opportunities for organizations to work together via low-cost solutions that still provide significant, mutual benefits.
This webinar will provide examples of innovative low-cost solutions that benefited the participants. These solutions also provided direct or indirect economic benefits to their impacted regions. The webinar participants will discuss some of the planning that occurred to allow the innovative low-cost solutions to be put into place.

Bhupendra Patel, PhD, Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG), will present a webinar on AMBAG’s experience with the TMIP Peer Review Process. During March 28-29, 2011, Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG) conducted a peer review for its current Regional Travel Demand Model (RTDM) and future Model Improvement Plan (MIP). AMBAG's motivation for seeking a TMIP peer review was to ensure that AMBAG staffs, its policy board, regional and local jurisdictions have a state-of-the-practice modeling tool to support their land use and transportation planning decisions. In a specific reference to AMBAG, TMIP Peer Review provided very specific assistance for their future Model Improvement Plan (MIP). Technical and financial support as provided under TMIP peer review helped AMBAG achieve several goals.
