Professor Brian Taylor, Director of ITS, recently led a group of 60 undergraduate students enrolled in the class, “Transportation Geography,” on a one-day field trip. The class visited a variety of transportation and transportation-related projects, facilities, neighborhoods, and corridors in Los Angeles. Students traveled through old streetcar suburbs of west LA, rode through the Playa Vista development, met with Los Angeles World Airports staff, toured the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles and the Alameda Corridor, walked through Union Station and Gateway Center in downtown Los Angeles, met with MTA staff to learn about bicycle planning, and took a walking tour of joint development projects along the Hollywood Corridor.
Three recent transportation graduates have won prestigious awards from the Council of University Transportation Centers (CUTC).
