In this conversation, Mark Hallenbeck, Director of the Washington State Transportation Center (TRAC) at the University of Washington, will give a talk on “Toll and Equity in Transportation.” Mark Hallenbeck is also a Senior Data Science Fellow at the UW eScience Institute. Mark has been with TRAC for over 36 years. He periodically teaches Intelligent Transportation Systems, Urban Transportation Planning, and Sustainable Transportation in the Department of Civil and Environment Engineering. Much of Mark’s research involves the collection, use, summarization, and reporting of data that describe transportation system use and performance. He is currently working with multiple agencies in the region to examine how “big data” and new technology can be used to improve regional mobility, how those data describe the equity of those services, and how changing mobility options are affecting land-use decisions.

Qing Shen, Professor of Urban Design and Planning, will serve as the discussant of Mark’s talk. Professor Shen’s primary areas of interest are urban economics and metropolitan transportation planning and policy. He is also Chair and Director of the University of Washington Graduate School’s Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Urban Design and Planning.
