This course is an introduction to urban transportation planning with a focus on pedestrian, bicycle,and transit use in dense urban environments. Transportation planning is an interdisciplinary field with interwoven, and often conflictual elements, of history, politics, funding, user costs, design, demographics, environmental consequences, and land use. From this perspective, planning can be seen as a process with a myriad of constraints, challenges, and opportunities. This course is designed to introduce students to the foundational components of transportation planning as well tools of analysis to best combine the theory and practice of transportation planning. The course will feature field trips and workshops with transportation planning professionals. The final project will be a comprehensive proposal for a specific site or transportation issue.
Open to Undergraduate students.
