      Course Description
    Introduces how communities look to urban transportation systems to address environmental design challenges, including urban development, congestion, pollution, sprawl, public safety, obesity, and physical isolation. Explores multi-modal transportation (walking, bicycle, public transit, vehicle) in U.S. cities and metropolitan areas in order to explain the central role of transportation in shaping urban environments and the lives of people. The course is both historical and topical; it examines the tandem evolution of transportation systems and urban development, and investigates current transportation debates such as environmental impacts, congestion, air quality, the role of government, and strategies for sustainable transportation and travel. Includes lectures and field work. May be offered on an intermittent basis. Open to all undergraduate students.
