Sustainable Transportation


In the pursuit of a model that meets needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future, sustainable transportation is inextricably linked to sustainable development. Starting from a context of land-use planning, this course will examine current transportation models and their impact on our environment, consider alternatives to these models, and discuss methods to affect change beyond the academic setting. The course provides an overview of sustainability as envisioned by the Smart Growth paradigm and explores issues of transportation policy as they pertain to a variety of modes, uses and users. Students will learn to think about transportation in close relation to land use and gain familiarity with local, national and international models of sustainable transportation.
