Promoting Cycling and Walking for Sustainable Cities: Lessons from Europe and North America

Our speaker today is John Pucher, professor of planning and public policy-Rutgers University, and author of City Cycling (MIT Press 2012).Many believe that cycling and walking are the most environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable of all transport modes. John will describe policies and programs necessary to make cycling and walking safe and convenient.   
John has conducted research on a wide range of topics in transport economics and finance. He has examined differences in travel behavior, transport systems, and transport policies in Europe, Canada, the USA, and Australia, with a particular focus on walking and bicycling.  John has published three books and numerous articles in academic and professional journals. His latest book, City Cycling,  provides an overview of international cycling trends and policies.
