In partnership with the Yale Journalism Initiative, Yale Transportation
Options will host two special guests on Tuesday January 19th, 2010. The
topic is “Traffic, Parking and our Green Future.” Tom Vanderbilt, author of
the New York Times bestselling book Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do
(and What It Says About Us), and UCLA Professor and Yale Alumnus Donald
Shoup (BE’61, PhD ’68), author of The High Cost of Free Parking, have agreed
to visit Yale to discuss issues of sustainability through the lens of
traffic and parking.
The discussion will certainly touch such multidisciplinary topics as land
use, economics, human behavior, transportation engineering, social change,
and the health of the community.
This event is open to the public
