Title: Transportation Technology, Systems, and Planning Transportation systems are among the most important contributors to challenges
 

Summary: Title: Transportation Technology, Systems, and Planning
Transportation systems are among the most important contributors to challenges
in environmental quality, social equity, economic development, and civic
engagement -- four of the "E"'s that motivate those working toward sustainability.
Efforts are being made in many diverse areas to make transportation more
sustainable. Cornell has expertise that will allow us to conduct research on how
to reduce such negative environmental impacts as emissions of greenhouse
gases, polluted storm runoff from highways and parking lots, and habitat
fragmentation. We have strength in understanding the economic value of
accessibility for cities and regions and the role of global supply chains in the
national economic growth. And we have expertise to advance understanding of
the social costs and benefits of transportation both as an economic activity and
as a set of infrastructure systems. These and many other transportation-related
topics provide an excellent platform for fresh research and collaboration based at
Cornell.
We invite faculty who share these interests to meet, explore common goals, and
discuss ways of capitalizing on recent developments to increase the visibility,
impact and funding of transportation research on campus.
