Advancing Livable Communities Through Sustainable Transportation

December 2015

With a focus on the role of transportation, researchers working on the Advancing Livable Communities through Sustainable Transportation Integrated Assessment (IA) asked: What policies, interventions, innovations, and partnerships best enable urban areas to create more livable communities? To answer this question, two research teams are working collaboratively with stakeholders and decision makers. Project 1 - Multi-Mode Transportation: Modeling Commuter Choice and Policy Options - Team: Richard Gonzalez, University of Michigan Institute for Social Research, and David Chock, University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. Project 2 - A Roadmap for Sustainable Transportation: Connected, Automated, and Electric Vehicle Systems - Team: Steve Underwood, Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and Connected Vehicle Proving Center, University of Michigan-Dearborn
