Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Levine,Jonathan; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 3

This course explores the interrelated systems of urban transportation and urban land use to discover principles and ideas that can be useful in developing plans that affect the two. The course covers four broad areas:

  1. Transportation Planning History: What assumptions and approaches have guided domestic transportation planning? How do transportation planning's roots and traditions affect current practice? In what ways did transportation planning and technologies interact to produce evolving city forms?
  2. Transportation and Land Use Theory: What frameworks have been developed to understand the interrelationships between transportation and land use, and how might these affect how we view potential transportation planning alternatives?
  3. Transportation Planning Techniques: Formal approaches to modeling domestic land use and transportation systems in the past few decades. We explore these approaches as well as their limitations.
  4. Urban Transportation Policy: Alternative definitions of "the transportation problem" can lead to different directions for policy. We explore various contemporary transportation planning concerns and approaches to dealing with them.

Advisory Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.
