CDG Director Antonio M. Rosell, P.E., AICP is teaching a new graduate-level course on Sustainable Transportation at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

The course explores techniques, best practices and methods for pedestrian and bicycle planning, including how to better integrate sustainable transportation options into our present transportation context and developing mobility frameworks that improve the social, economic and environmental sustainability of our cities.

The course covers latest methods, research and trends in the US urban transportation context, as well as current mobility issues and sustainable mobility interventions in a variety of world settings and conditions, highlighting standards and emerging and best practices in use in the US, Europe, Latin America, and other locations.

The course was featured in the February 2013 issue of the Center for Transportation Studies' Catalyst magazine (please click here for article).
