Join us for the release party of Sustainable Transportation Planning by Jeffrey Tumlin, principal and sustainability practice leader for Nelson\Nygaard.

Sustainable Transportation Planning seeks to tackle the greatest social and environmental concerns of the 21st century, focusing on the role of transportation in creating more sustainable communities. The book offers a big-picture approach to transportation systems. Using clear, nontechnical language, this guide provides step-by-step instructions for implementing smart transportation concepts in cities of all sizes. Making this material accessible opens the door to greater participation in transportation planning by design and policy professionals, as well as citizen activists. The text also helps transportation professionals better understand and align their discipline within the broader movement toward sustainable urbanism.
