Program Overview:

Increasing dependence on automobiles has led to traffic congestion and contributes to physical inactivity, poor health, and environmental problems. This course introduces bicycle, pedestrian and transit travel modes as complementary to private automobiles. This  cross‐disciplinary class is designed for future engineers, urban planners, health advocates, policy makers and others interested in creating a more balanced transportation system. We feel that it would benefit students to travel with students from different disciplines, and
thus are reaching out to both engineering and non‐engineering programs (similar to the Engineers without Borders MSU model).


Participants will travel through cities in the Netherlands and Germany by train, bicycle, and on foot, as they explore how these European countries have built transportation systems that encourage alternatives to private car transportation.
