Sustainable Transportation in the International Context – China Planning Workshop
The funds were used for two purposes. One was to support UT students participating in a study abroad program in China, which was part of the graduate course CRP381s International Transportation Issues. Six UT students (5 for credits and 1 being the RA/TA) participated in the program. The other was to support faculty travel leading the study abroad program and attending conferences on related subjects.
The program took place in summer, 2013, performing case study of four cities. Activities taking place in each include the following:
- Visit city planning exhibition center to learn city development history and its past and future plans;
- Visit/Exchange with planning program at the university in the client city, focusing on transportation and related subjects;
- Field trip/analysis of 1~2 TOD examples;
- Self-guided tour experiencing the city.
