Faculty: Craig R. Lentzsch
This course will provide an overview of the transportation sector of the North American economy, focusing on all of the modes. It will include a discussion of the vision of a transportation system for the future: one that moves people and goods efficiently, economically, safely and securely, and in an environmentally benign manner on an integrated, seamless, ethical transportation system that uses the strengths of all modes and minimizes their weaknesses. The course will discuss how such an intermodal system impacts the development of the US and global economies.
