Examining the systems and structures
that link people and places

Transportation systems connect people to work, school, activities and each other. The USC Price School examines the role of transportation in the growth and formation of cities, public transit congestion patterns, and goods movement in metro areas. Research seeks to improve transportation options for all people; reduce pollution and GHG from transportation; and contribute to making more livable cities.
