Transportation Policy

Fall 2013 quarter

Taught by

Ryan Warner

No matter if you are a program manager at a non-profit, a policy analyst in a government agency, or simply a citizen trying to get to work or school your life is affected by the challenges of transportation. During this weekend intensive seminar we will analyze and discuss the wide range of transportation choices. The course will focus on understanding how transportation policy is formed at the various levels of government by examining statutory and regulatory frameworks, institutions involved in transportation policy, policymaking processes and the stakeholders who shape transportation policy and investments.  The class will look at modes of surface transportation including motor vehicles, rail, public transportation, bicycling and walking and examine the relationship between transportation policy and other critical urban and regional policy issues including economic development, public health, land use, smart growth and climate change.

 The weekend will be interactive with guest speakers, small group work, and out of the classroom learning.
