Our center supports innovations in developing multimodal solutions for mitigating congestion. This theme was selected because
congestion mitigation is one of the top priorities of the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) as well as for the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT), our partner agency. The theme was also chosen because addressing congestion via
multimodal means is an approach we believe is likely to be successful; it considers the transportation system in its entirety rather
than one or more independent parts.


CMS ANNUAL REPORT 2009-2010 | 3










DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE


that I present to you the
CMS's Annual Report
for the 2009-2010 year.
Throughout the pages
of this report, you will
find information related to
our research, education and
technology transfer activities.
Our continued goal is to
enhance each of these areas
and to improve transportation
in Florida and throughout the
nation.

The first group of projects
(selected and started in 2008)
the CMS funded have been
completed and their final
reports are posted on the CMS
website at http://cms.ce.ufl.
edu/research/completed
projects.php. These projects
dealt with a wide variety
of topics, including costs
associated with transportation
congestion in supply chains,
optimization of signal timing as
a means to reduce congestion,
development of congestion
pricing strategies, and the
creation of a repository for
traffic data. Projects awarded
in 2009 are currently underway
and progressing as scheduled.
Our call for proposals this
year yielded a total of 18 pre-
proposals, of which nine were
finally selected for funding.


Descriptions of our 2010
proj ects are posted at httD./{
cms.ce.ufl.edu/research/. In
addition to those, FDOT has
funded a total of 17 projects
to-date with six of those
completed. Descriptions of
ongoing and completed match
proj ects are posted on the
CMS website (go to Research
in the main menu and look
for Ongoing Projects and
Completed Projects).

The numb er of CMS-affiliated
students who graduated this
year doubled as compared to
last year! This year we had
a total of 34 transportation-
related degrees awarded
compared to 17 degrees last
year. Our graduates have
secured jobs in the government,
academic and private sectors.
A few examples are listed in
the Education section of this
annual report.

The numb er of CMS-affiliated
graduate students, increased
38 percent over last year! We
currently have 95 graduate
students affiliated with the
center compared to 69 students
last year. Also, this year several
of our students received
awards from the Council of
University Transp ortation
Centers (CUTC), the Women's


Transportation Seminar
(WTS), the American Public
Transportation Foundation
(APTF), and the Intelligent
Transportation Society (ITS).
Our Transportation Research
Internship Program (TRIP)
continues to grow strong with
five new students participating
this summer.

Thanks to a very active and
motivated group of students,
the establishment of the
first-ever student chapter of
the WTS, complete with by-
laws, was approved by WTS
International and the student
government at the University
of Florida. The newly created
WTS student chapter is gearing
up for a busy fall 2010 season!
Monitor our website for
additional information about
upcoming activities of the
group.

Our technology transfer efforts
this year included a wide range
of activities such as workshops,
symposia, seminars, Web cast
lecturers of distinguished
academic and professional
visitors, and conferences at
the local and national levels.
Last summer, the CMS co-
sponsored a Workshop on
Roundabouts, which featured
well-known practitioners


in the area of roundabout
design and operations. The
2nd Congestion Mitigation
Strategies Symposium was
Once again offered and featured
Congressman John Mica
(R-Fla.) who participated
via videoconference from
Washington, D.C. Activities
during the Spring 2010
semester included the meeting
of the CMS's External Advisory
Board (EAB), the Annual
Student Conference and
the Innovations in Pricing
of Transportation Systems
Conference, held in Orlando,
Fla. Read more about these
activities in the Technology
Transfer section of this report.

As I look back on this year,
I am proud of what we have
accomplished. The collective
efforts from our affiliated
researchers, faculty, students,
and staff at UF, including our
partners in the public, private
and government sectors, have
all contributed to the CMS's
success. I look forward to
another exciting year!

Sincerely,




Lily Elefteriadou, Ph.D.
CMS Director

EXTERNAL ADVISORY BOARD
TIhe role of the External Advisory Board (EAB) is to guide the activities of the CMS. TIhe board has been instrumental in generating ideas for research projects, and
they also evaluate the research selection and performance processes, guide educational activities and assist in technology transfer at the local, state and national levels.

Board members represent a wide-range of sectors such as the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Federal
Highway Administration (FHWA), academia, local government, and private industry representatives. In 2010, Darryll Dockstader of FDOT became the CMS's
newest EAB member, replacing Richard Long after his retirement from FDOT in June 2009. Mr. Long was the Director of Research at FDOT. Mr. Dockstader now
holds that position.

TIhe third meeting of the EAB took place March 4-5, 2010. TIhe board provided the CMS with excellent feedback and recommendations related to curriculum
development and technology transfer. This meeting was held in conjunction with the CMS Annual Student Conference.

"Zlrl Ise il. last three years, CM1S has actively and successfully collaborated with
FDOT to undertake research in areas of critical importance. Several projects
have already concluded and have provided valuable results. Onzgoing projects
of much interest promise additional benefit to FDOT and the transportation
community at large as do upcoming projects currently being prepared."


DOUG MCLEOD, P.E.
Systems Planning Ofice
Florida Department of Transportation
"The Florida Department of Transportation and I, p. ~....:,i. have greatly benefited from
collaboration with the UF Center fr Mlultimodal Solutions, and I look forward to e..su;l~r IIn,
that relationship. The CM1S is at theforefront of current research in travel time reliability by
studying it from a multimodal perspective, rather than just with respect to the auto/truck
highway modes, and in addressing it as a transportation mobility performance measure. I
look forward to their continued r,,rt; -neilrs, bicycle, pedestrian and transit analyses and the
opportunity to use the results in our planning and preliminary engineering processes.


DEBORA M. RIVERA, P.E.
Director of Transportation Operations

CMS ANNUAL REPORT 2009-2010 13













Research at the CMS is conducted by a multidisciplinary group of faculty working together to develop methods that have the potential to mitigate congestion
problems both nationally and internationally. Some key areas of research in congestion mitigation at the CMS include traffic operations, congestion pricing
and transportation and land-use planning. The multidisciplinary nature of the CMS allows it to utilize valuable expertise in subject areas such as demand
modeling, urban planning, sustainability, traffic flow theory and systems analysis, as well as statistics, optimization, simulation and computer methods.

The CMS employs a rigorous, multi-step peer-reviewed research selection process that includes a pre-proposal submitted by principal investigators (PIs) that
is reviewed by the center's Project Review Committee (faculty not associated with the pre-proposal). Based on these peer reviews, selected pre-proposals are
invited for full proposal submission. Full proposals are peer reviewed by external (outside UF) reviewers and selections of final projects are made based on
the input of these reviewers. CMS projects are selected to support the objectives of the center, the FDOT and the U.S. DOT.

Ongoing projects are posted at http://cms.ce.ufl.edu/research/. The projects are monitored closely, and quarterly reports are collected to ensure that each
project is progressing as planned. Final reports from Year 1 (2008) and other publications generated from the center are posted on the CMS website at:
_http,://cms.ce.ufl.edu/research/completed projects.php.

In fall 2009, the CMS issued its third call for pre-proposals for the new 2009-2010. Out of 18 pre-proposals submitted, nine were invited to proceed to the
full proposal stage. After evaluating the results produced by the external reviews, the CMS selected all nine projects for a total of $583,833 in grants awarded.

The FDOT has partnered with the CMS to provide matching funds for the center. Since the center's inception, there have been 17 match projects totaling
$2,506,629. A list of CMS and FDOT funded projects is shown in the following pages.

YINGYAN LOU, PH.D. (UF 2009)
"The program at UF is balanced and vibrant. The program exposes students to various areas of
transportation, which helps students develop a broader view that will benef t them in their future
careers. I wyitnlessed the growth and development of the program in the past several years, and I
am '. ~,i,l:.6t from the knowledge and experiences obtained from the program during my frst
year at w~ork. I am a very proud alumnus of the center and in to.. ,, 1

BENITO PEREz, M.S./MAURP (UF 2009)
"The skill-set and experience tied to what I developed at the University of Florida in the joint URP
and CM1S transportation engineering and planning program has rlii ~. .... me to be successful in
the work that I do now and think outside the box from a macro to micro level of detail in the
ever-emerginzg and dynamic issues in transportation. The CM1S/URP program has made me a
strong and dynamic transportation engineer/planner in the feld, and also at the same time, an
ambassador of the CM1S/URP program and the Gator Nation to Hampton Roads."

ABISHEK KOM MA, M.S. (UF 2008)
"I am very thankful that CM1S helped me fund my trip to Athens, Greece, to present my poster at
the applicationn of Advanced Technologies in Transportation" conference. This also gave me an
opportunity to meet and share ideas with researchers and scholars outside the country."

ALEX ANDRA KONDYLI, PH.D. (UF 2009)
"Being a Ph.D. student at the University of Forida has been a valuable and fun experience fr
me. The educational level and the degree requirements at UF are very high and the knowledge
that I have gained is unquestionable. Throughout my studies at the Transportation Enlgineering
Ph.D. program, I received valuable experience in the feld of transportation engineering.


ANA LAI, M.S. (UF 2009)
"Mly love for tragic engineering blossomed due to the CM1S/TRC professors, staff and students.
They are brilliant minds at theforefront of transportation research, and I could not help but join
their eforts and enthusiasm. Each professor became a mentor, role model, and friend. I gained
cheerleaders in all matters, from engineering to canoeing to even dancing. I cannot thank them
enough fr all they have shared and are e testerlle, to share."

SEOKJOO LEE, PH.D. (UF 2009)
! .. I,Ien, projects underway at the CM1S made me pursue the Ph.D. program at UR The academic
excellence and consistent support I received helped me to develop research initiatives in my area.


JIAN (DANIEL) SUN, PH.D. (UF 2009)
"I really appreciated the courses and research opportunities li; ~... at the CM1S, which were an
excellentfoundation for graduate research. Coming from China, I feel the CM1S always likes a big
family. Professors and students are n~ einer to help each other. As an assistant professor in Tomgji
Univ. China, I wYould advise my students to join this amazing center as it will provide an excellent
foundation for anyone hoping to wYork in the transportation area.

AARON E LI AS, M.S. (U F 2009)
"I will always remember the wonderful people and experiences I had wYhile a graduate student in
the transportation program at the University of Florida. Without the coursework and research I
performed at UE I would have been unprepared to meet today's transportation issues.







Transportation faculty, students and staff.

competition. Attending the STC
banquet is an excellent opportunity
for students to network with their
peers from other universities
and with other transportation
professionals. In late spring 2010,
Dimitra Michalaka, a doctoral
student in the transportation
program, traveled to Washington,
D.C. to attend the Women's
Transportation Seminar (WTS)
Conference as the representative
of the first-ever student chapter of
the WTS, which was approved and
activated this year.

CMS-affiliated students are also
involved in many activities with a
social agenda. Each fall, the students
participate in the Transportation
Research Center's (TRC) annual
picnic. And, for the first time in Fall
2009, the students, through UFITE,
created the UFITE Soccer League.
TIhe student players represent
10 different countries; they play
soccer every Friday evening on
the University of Florida's campus.
UFITE Secretary, Md. Shahid
Mamun, a doctoral student in the
transportation program, began this
initiative,. Other socially centered
activities include assisting with
homeless shelter initiatives in
Gainesville, participating in the


American Cancer Society's Relay
for Life fundraiser, and other events
such as the chapter's annual bowling
night, and the CMS/Transportation
Research Center's sponsored picnic.

WOMEN'S TR ANSPORTATION
SEMINAR STUDENT CHAPTER

UF's Department of Civil &r Coastal
Engineering transportation students
formed the first student chapter
of the Women's Transportation
Seminar (WTS), an international
professional association dedicated
to the advancement of women in
transportation. The WTS student
chapter at UF willbe under the
tutelage of the WTS Central
Florida Chapter of Orlando, Fla.
Barbara Martin, a master's student
in the transportation program,
is currently serving as the new
student chapter's president. She is
joined in this endeavor by Heather
Hammontree, vice president;
Genesis Harrod, secretary; Dimitra
Michalaka, treasurer, and other
transportation graduate students
(Irene Soria, UF 2009; Xiaoyu Zhu,
Jing Li and Zhuofei Li). Ines Aviles-
Spadoni serves as the adviser to the
student chapter. Last fall, several
organizations held preliminary
discussions regarding the potential


formation of a WTS student chapter
at UE Hong-Ting Chen of PBS&J~'s
National Toll Technology Division
(former Central Florida Chapter's
Scholarship Chair), Ines Aviles-
Spadoni, CMS coordinator, and
Lily Elefteriadou, CMS director
discussed the possibility. In February,
UF students were invited to join
WTS Central Florida Chapter,
Orlando, in their annual retreat,
where discussions regarding the
future activities of the newly formed
student chapter were included. In
April 2010, the Central Florida
Chapter held a training session at
UF as part of the activities. WTS
Central Florida chapter members
in attendance included Barbi Stiles,
Eileen LaSeur, Kory Alger, Deepali
Patil, and Hong-Ting Chen. Leena
Patil, past president of the WTS
Northeast Florida chapter, also
attended.

CONCURRENT DEGREE
PROGRAM M

TIhe concurrent degree program
prepares students for a career in the
interdisciplinary field of planning,
designing and operating urban
infrastructure. Students take courses
in transportation engineering and
urban planning and earn a Master


of Engineering (M.E.) or a Master
of Science (M.S.), and a Master of
Arts in Urban &r Regional Planning
(MAURP). Students take a total of
73 credit hours (30 in transportation
engineering and 52 in urban
planning, with nine credits shared
between both degrees). TIhe program
takes three years to complete.
Funding opportunities are available
for students through the CMS or
the departments of Civil &r Coastal
Engineering and Urban &r Regional
Planning.

TIhe very first graduate of the
concurrent degree program
was Benito Perez (UF 2009).
Mr. Perez is currently employed
as a transportation engineer/
planner with the Hampton Roads
Metropolitan Planning Organization
in Chesapeake, Va. Mr. Perez's
position focuses on long-range
transportation planning for the
Hampton Roads area. In Spring
2010, Jessica Alvarez became the
second graduate of the program.
She is currently working for
Gainesville Regional Transit (RTS) in
Gainesville, Fla.


hec CMS is affiliated with an
active UF student chapter of the
Institute of Transportation Engineers
(UFITE). TIhe students, led this year
(2009-2010) by Andrew Avent (M.S.
2009), organized and participated
in many activities with research,
educational and social benefits.

From November 4-6, 2009, a group
of four UFITE students attended
the annual meeting of the Florida
Section,Institute of Transportation
Engineers (FSITE) in Tampa.
Students also attended the 89th
Annual Transportation Research
Board Meeting in Washington,
D.C., in January 2010. Twenty-two
students from UFITE traveled to this
meeting to attend presentations by
various national and international
transportation professionals.
Students were also treated to a tour
of an Acela High-Speed Rail train
at Union Station in Washington,
D.C. Eight UFITE/CMS-affiliated
students presented their research
at TRB this year. Students also
attended the Annual Southeastern
Transportation Center (STC)
Banquet and entered their research
posters in the center's student poster

research at the CMS with faculty and graduate students. CMS expects the internships to help spark the students' interest in pursuing graduate studies and a
career in transportation engineering. The program runs from May to August every summer, and students are expected to work at least 20 hours per week.
Interns participate in research proj ects related to traffic operations, highway capacity and quality of service, reliability, safety, travel modeling, network
optimization and transportation systems planning.

Interns in the program are supervised by a faculty adviser and work in close collaboration with master's and doctoral students. Interns are also required to
attend seminars presented by faculty and students. Students are expected to produce a research report related to their assigned project and present it at the
end of their internship period.
