Today four VT MURP students from our Northern Virginia/ Washington DC campus presented results from a MURP studio class at the TRB Annual Meeting. The poster was based on a peer-reviewed paper.
The poster and paper were titled ‘ A First Look: Comparison of Users and Usage Patterns of Dockless and Docking-Station-Based Bikeshare Systems in Washington, D.C.’
Transportation Research Part A published our article “Active travel as stable source of physical activity for one third of German adults: Evidence from longitudinal data,’ on their website. The article will eventually become part of a special issue on walking and cycling.
In late November I presented this paper at the ACSP Annual Conference in Buffalo, NY.
It was a great pleasure to present our research on regional public transport associations at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium.
The Virginia Tech News featured our ‘Sustainable Europe‘ course from summer 2018.
“Students study sustainability abroad”
We will offer the course again in summer 2019, stay tuned for updates!
