About the Access to Destinations Project:

Access to Destinations is an interdisciplinary research and outreach effort coordinated by the Center for Transportation Studies at the University of Minnesota, with support from sponsors including the Minnesota Department of Transportation, Hennepin County, the Metropolitan Council, and the McKnight Foundation.

The Access to Destinations Study takes a new approach to understanding how people use the transportation system, and how transportation and land use interact. At the heart of this approach is the concept of accessibility: the ability of people to reach the destinations that they need to visit in order to meet their needs. By focusing on accessibility - rather than simple congestion measures - the Access to Destinations Study aims to produce a more complete and meaningful picture of transportation and its role in our lives.

This presentation will discuss the research and results of this five year study, along with a newly created online mapping tool to help those who make transportation and land-use decisions in the Twin Cities region capture variations in accessibility to different types of destinations for travelers who drive, bike, walk, or use transit.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch to this event. Please RSVP to Matthew Parent at matthew.parent@co.anoka.mn.us by Tuesday, April 12th ."
