TRB Transportation and Land Development Committee

The Transportation and Land Development Committee (ADD30) is a Standing Committee of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies. Our members include leading experts from across public, private and university sectors with a focus on land use and transportation planning and policy.


To inform practitioners about the interrelationships between transportation and land use and development, including but not limited to the following:

  • the effect that transportation infrastructure has on urban form and development
  • the impact that urban form, development and design has on travel behavior
  • the impact that all the above factors has on energy efficiency, sustainability and resilience of our cities and regions
  • tools and techniques for understanding and influencing the above

We meet annually at the Transportation Research Board Conference in Washington, D.C. and hold other meetings throughout the year, including a regular webinar series. Please view our Webinar Series Here
