Sustainable Transportation Committee


The mission of the ASCE T&DI Sustainable Transportation Committee (STC) is to engage transportation and development engineers, environmental scientists, social scientists, and other professionals in the development and dissemination of information and knowledge pertaining to improving the sustainability of transportation and urban development. The STC considers the full life cycle of transportation and urban development, including planning, design, construction, operation, and renewal of urban places, transportation facilities, and related systems. The STC focuses on systems issues related to the interactions of transportation systems and urban development with the natural, social and institutional environments, and their impacts on economic growth and human quality of life.
