Transportation and the Environment
Students will be introduced to the complexities in the relationship of transportation and the environment. An important theme of this class is that real world trade-offs are inherent in addressing transportation as an important cause of environmental degradation. Solutions considered have technical, socio-economic, and cultural impediments. Students will learn from case studies of success in creating more environmentally-benign forms of access and mobility. Students will contribute their own ideas in class discussions and a term paper on innovation in transportation policy to address environmental concerns.
