Researchers in PPPM have been examining the interrelationships between urban form, travel behavior, and accessibility of cities with particular emphasis on bike and pedestrian travel. This includes issues of urban form and its relation to transportation options, the impacts of autonomous vehicles and ride sharing, and the regional issues associated with transportation and land use planning.
