Awards

CTF research program of the year

During its 31st Annual Transportation Awards, the California Transportation Foundation recognized UCLA ITS’ study on Bay Area Transit Ridership. “What’s Behind Recent Transit Ridership Trends in the Bay Area?” won the 2019 “Organized Research Program of the Year” award. 

The report analyzed ridership across eight transit agencies in the Bay Area from 2008-2018. The data the researchers collected found that ridership losses were most pronounced on buses, at off-peak times, on weekends, in non-commute directions, on outlying lines, and on transit operators that do not serve the region’s core jobs clusters. In other words, transit trips in the region are increasingly commute-focused, particularly into and out of downtown San Francisco.

APA Los Angeles Awards 

A research project by Katelyn Stangl MURP ‘19, entitled “Parking? Lots! Parking Over the Minimum in Los Angeles,”  was honored with the American Planning Association Los Angeles’ 2020 award for academic excellence for work conducted as part of master’s capstone project. Stangl’s research set out to help pave the way for parking minimum reform by investigating why a developer would build over parking minimums.

Among the other APA Los Angeles award recipients were the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs with the landmark award to mark 50 years of UCLA’s urban planning department and its contributions to the Los Angeles community, and the UCLA Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, as part of the team that advised LA Metro’s “Understanding How Women Travel” report.

APA Student Paper Competition

Two UCLA urban planning students both won second place in the APA Transportation Planning Division’s 2020 student paper competition. 

Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting Awards

UCLA researchers with Pyke Johnson awards 2020Evelyn Blumenberg won the TRB Pyke Johnson Award for her work on the mobility needs of aging adults, marking the third UCLA faculty member to win since the prize’s inception. The award-winning paper explores the relationship between car ownership, transit accessibility, and older adults’ employment status. Established in 1971, the award recognized an outstanding paper published in the field of transportation systems planning and administration. The paper was co-authored by Andrew Schouten PhD ‘19, doctoral student Miriam Pinski, and professor emeritus Martin Wachs, who won the same award more than 40 years ago, in 1976.

 

Cassie Halls MURP ‘20 won the “Best Master’s Student Poster Presentation” during TRB’s 2020 Transportation Research Showcase. The poster presentation featured Halls’ work, along with Emma Huang MPP ’17 from LA Metro’s Office of Extraordinary Innovation, on a case study of bus-lane management. The study measured how the tactical transit lane on Flower Street in downtown Los Angeles impacted bus travel times, corridor-level throughput, and customer and operator experience.

Jacob Wasserman MURP ‘19, who currently works as a research project manager for UCLA ITS, won the Neville A. Parker Award for his capstone project, “A Time and Place for Every Rider? Geographic and Temporal Changes in Bay Area Transit Ridership.”

The award is given annually by the Council of University Transportation Centers to two recipients for the best master’s project in either policy and planning, or science and technology. Since 2002, a UCLA student has won it nine times.

ITS students are among the most honored in academic planning — and 2018 was no exception. Once again, graduate students and doctoral candidates at ITS took home a number of the country’s most prestigious awards for transportation scholarship.

Anne E. Brown, who completed her Ph.D. this spring, was the third ITS scholar in the past four years to receive the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning’s Barclay Gibbs Jones Award for best dissertation in planning for her project Ridehail Revolution: Ridehail Travel and Equity in Los Angeles (read the policy briefs here and here). The project also earned Dr. Brown the Council of University Transportation Centers’ Charley V. Wooten award for outstanding doctoral thesis in transportation policy and planning, and she was named the Pacific Southwest Region University Transportation Center’s student of the year. She is now an assistant professor at the University of Oregon.  

Melissa D. Sather, a 2018 graduate of the UCLA Luskin Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program, was also recognized by the Council of University Transportation Centers, winning the Neville A. Parker Award for outstanding master’s project in the field of policy and planning, and science and technology for her capstone report A New Model for Transit: Transit/TNC Partnerships in Western Riverside County (read the policy brief here).

Two current ITS doctoral candidates, Hannah King and Miriam Pinski, saw their research honored with scholarships from the Los Angeles chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar. “I hope I can make my mark in academia, affecting policies that make transit systems safe and convenient for women and girls,” said Pinski (pictured above) at the awards ceremony.  “I hope to research and teach transportation planning at the graduate level,” said King. “Receiving the WTS-LA Scholarship takes me one step closer to reaching that goal, and, I hope, in some small way will better enable me to give back to the wider transportation community.

Several ITS scholars were recipients of the annual Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program awards:

  • Cassie Halls, a first-year MURP student
  • Dustin Khuu, a second-year MURP student completing the capstone project “Assessing Barriers to Mobility and Accessibility in Watts: A Case Study of the Jordan Downs Housing Development”
  • Hannah King, a third-year urban planning doctoral student studying travel behavior, gentrification and displacement, and new mobility
  • Miriam Pinski, a first-year urban planning doctoral student studying transportation and equity issues for vulnerable populations, such as older adults and women
  • Jacob Wasserman, a second-year MURP student completing the capstone project “A Time and a Place for Every Rider?: Geographic and Temporal Changes in Bay Area Transit Ridership”
  • Teo Wickland, a fourth-year urban planning doctoral student completing the dissertation “Pluralizing Transportation Epistemologies: Culture, Environment, and Mobile Materialities in French Polynesia”

Congratulations to all, and ITS looks forward to honoring more groundbreaking research in 2019!
