2011 Students

 

Sustainable Transportation Class Projects

The following are a selection of student term projects from my Sustainable Transportation class in the Fall, 2013 term. Each student has given permission for their work to be shared in the hopes that their ideas can help lead to better practice. Their oral presentations were all excellent and in many ways more compelling than the written work below. I am sure they would be happy to deliver a presentation on their work if interested. Please contact me if that is the case.

Timing the Lights by Paul Belton

This project focused on opportunities to time High and Pearl streets in Eugene to work better for people on bikes. The concept of the "green wave" times lights to be at the pace of people on bikes to make travellign on those corridors efficient. Signal timing can be done to meet bike and car users.
