By on May 18, 2018

Universidad del Rosario Bogota (Colombia)  is organising a summer course taught by Professor Daniel Rodriguez from UC Berkeley from June 5 to 22.

This course offers an introduction to the relationship between investing in transportation and mobility, and urban development. It focuses on innovation in public transportation, such as bus rapid transit (BRT) systems and aerial trams, as well as on the advances in the design and promotion of non-motorized transport in Latin America. The course will also address the technological advancements that improve shared mobility and automated transport systems. Participants will receive theoretical and practical classes on transportation and mobility planning and management with a focus on their impacts on urban development. Training on data processing and analysis will also be provided in order to understand the influence of transportation and mobility on urban geography. Upon completion of the course, participants will have the abilities to analyze information that can be used as a tool for developing and assessing public policy on mobility and urban development.
