Course Description

Access and mobility are essential elements of an urban plan. Through lectures, discussions, case studies, and exercises, this course examines the issues and analytical framework tools and skills involved in transportation planning. There will be an emphasis on a number of key areas of study: transportation master planning, parking demand and analysis, transportation modeling, highway capacity and level of service, streetscape, and geometrics. Cases and exercises will correlate these areas of transportation research and analysis with their interrelationships with land use and economic activity.
