Meet the Instructors
Mark Hallenbeck is the director of the Washington State Transportation Center (TRAC) at the University of Washington. He has been with TRAC for about 35 years and frequently teaches urban transportation planning and intelligent transportation systems in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the UW.
Much of Hallenbeck’s research involves data that describe transportation system use and performance. He works with multiple agencies in the region to examine how big data and new technology can be used to improve regional mobility, while examining how changing mobility options are affecting land use decisions. Hallenbeck works on projects ranging from the analysis of how dynamic pricing on the I-405 express lanes impacts user behavior to the use of electronic transit fare card and dockless bike data for better multimodal planning.
