Research into sustainable transportation combines many disciplines and perspectives. Graduate students in Social Sciences may collect travel survey data, coordinate focus groups, and conduct field studies of human behavior. Engineering students model travel demand, optimize the transportation network system and perform both lab and field experiments on tailpipe emissions. Economic students may delve into transportation financing issues and students in Community Development and Applied Economics may examine transportation impacts on our communities. All TRC graduate students conduct research that addresses critical issues in transportation and solutions for the 21st century.
