Public Policy & Transportation

UP 671

This course examines surface transportation from a broad public policy perspective, with a special focus on its institutional and urban components. With shifting political priorities, central government's role in transportation has changed significantly in the past decade. Concurrently, the mandates placed upon the transportation planning profession have changed and incorporate enhanced attention to air quality and other non-mobility concerns such as promoting broader public participation, preserving the environment, and ensuring social equity. The course investigates this changing landscape for transportation planning and its implications for the relationships between federal, state, regional, and local authorities.
