Transportation and Land-Use

The Transportation and Land-use program examines transit-infrastructure projects, land-use policies, and complementary data sets to understand how agencies build, manage, and pay for capital projects, like subway expansions, bicycle lanes, and high speed rail. 

We combine quantitative and qualitative research approaches to inform the questions we ask and guide our efforts to count and measure the most meaningful elements. We are always seeking to understand how to improve project and policy delivery; thus, we take a cross-sectional approach to every issue we study. Understanding what works and what doesn’t in Berlin, Seoul, Istanbul, Lagos, and New York is critical to refining and improving public services.
