Topic: Making Urban Transport Sustainable: Comparison of Germany and the USA
Germany and the U.S. have among the highest motorization rates in the world. Yet Germans make a four times higher share of trips by foot, bike, and public transport and drive for a 25 percent lower share of trips. This seminar investigates international trends in daily travel behavior with a focus on Germany and the USA. The transport and land-use policies in Germany over the last 40 years that have encouraged more walking, bicycling, and public transport use will be discussed.
This seminar is free and open to the public.
