This game is developed based on Glen Koorey's approach (Getting from A to B: Using an Interactive Display to Demonstrate Transportation Planning and Design Issues) presented in 2009 TRB annual meeting. He developed a transportation board display with a landscape that allows students to place magnetic road segments for optimal route design. Based on the origin and destination and initial alignment, students can place linear or curved road segment on the board display to form a roadway along desired path with different objective, for example, to minimize the user cost, construction cost, or both combined.
This online route optimization game is more flexible and includes additional features that will allow users to select different landscape map, origin or destination location and initial direction of alignments .
