Coordination of land use and transportation is one of today's hot topics in urban planning, mainly because other Asolutions@ to traffic congestion have proven so ineffective. If we cannot pave our way out of congestion, we must reduce the need for so much vehicular travel, or so the theory goes. This is where coordinated land use and transportation planning comes in. This course is based on a training course developed for the National Transit Institute and delivered to land use and transportation professionals in 30 metropolitan areas across the U.S. The greater time available for this course should allow us to do a better job than in the NTI training course.
