Non-motorized Transportation Planning

School and Department: 
  • Environmental Design, School of
  • Community and Regional Planning
Course Number: 

Transportation planning in the United States has long focused on improving conditions for motorized travel, primarily by personal cars and light duty trucks. The effects of an over-emphasis on motorized travel on energy consumption, traffic congestion, and the physical form of our communities, however, have led to the promotion of non -motorized transportation—that is, travel on foot and bicycle. This course is designed to develop an appreciation of the role of non- motorized transportation in the United States; to understand the conflicts and opportunities for compatibility between different modes of transportation; and to gain skills in planning for safer, more convenient, and more appealing walking and bicycling conditions in American cities and suburbs.
