Multi-Modal Transport

INL is researching the impact of changes in the future transportation system and how they will impact other parts of the transportation network. In particular INL is investigating activities such as:

  • How new passenger transportation options will impact the public transit network such as buses and trains

  • How new technologies for freight delivery will impact the movement of goods across different freight modes such as trucking, trains, air freight, and shipping
  • How changes in shipping frequency and delivery options will impact how packages are delivered in a city and what the energy changes will be. This includes detailed experiments on the energy use of drones
