Economics and Finance
The economics of transportation are incredibly complex; small changes in pricing and efficiency can have substantial ramifications on behavior. Transportation infrastructure projects are among the biggest public investments that we make. How should we fund public transit? What are the impacts of congestion pricing? How can we encourage coordination between ridesharing platforms? MIT researchers are exploring the answers to these important questions and more.
