Urban Planning, Design and Policy
MIT's top ranked city planning program is training the next generation of transportation planners and policy makers. Urban mobility is shaped by political decisions and land-use patterns. Researchers and students are investigating these relationships and creating new planning tools to promote a sustainable, equitable future. Active student projects include transit-oriented development policies for emerging cities and mobility solutions for informal settlements.
The research labs and faculty working in this area are shown below. You can see a full listing of the people and labs involved with the MIT Mobility Initiative by navigating to the people page and the labs page.
