The concept of smart cities has attracted considerable attention in recent years. One of the emerging challenges for cities is how to incorporate these social, cultural, and technological trends with policies, planning, and implementation, alongside and integrated with existing traditional transportation systems, such as highways, roads, and fixed-route transit.
In this sample class, we will discuss the key planning and policy issues and challenges for transportation in a smart city, along with the opportunities smart transportation solutions bring for sustainable, inclusive, and livable communities.
