Travel has a significant impact on our natural and built environment. In the U.S. about one third of greenhouse gas emissions are from the transportation sector. Additionally, our society continues to be confronted with question of how best to create convenient, affordable, and safe travel while maintaining the livability and attractiveness of our communities. 

This panel discussion will identify how transportation impacts our environment and more thoroughly look into the operations of four American universities to discover their transportation challenges. It will explore how these universities implement best-practice planning principles to facilitate efficient transportation while maintaining an attractive campus ecosystem within each of their unique communities.
