Making A Difference: Graduate Studies in Transportation at UCLA

bruinwalkWhen students come to UCLA to study transportation, they join a worldwide network of hundreds of UCLA transportation alumni, many of whom hold leadership positions in government, private consulting, and advocacy organizations. UCLA-trained transportation planners and policy analysts develop, analyze, and manage the transportation systems that move society. Here are some examples of the current work of UCLA transportation alumni:

  • Transportation planners at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority develop new, smart “rapid bus” services to speed commuters along congested streets.
  • Transportation policy analysts with the California Department of Transportation develop new programs and services to help low-income people commute to and from steady jobs.
  • Transportation policy analysts with a consulting firm in New York City develop new tools for measuring transportation system performance.
  • Transportation analysts with a planning advocacy organization in Washington, DC organize and lobby for improved alternatives to private vehicle travel.
  • Transportation planners with a consulting firm in Orange County use computer models to forecast changes in development patterns and travel behavior.
  • Transportation planners with the World Bank develop more cost-effective and sustainable transportation services in developing countries.
  • Transportation planners with the Federal Transit Administration develop programs to encourage pedestrian – and bicycle-friendly developments around major transit stops and stations.
