- Course objectives
- Transportation Economics explores the efficient use of society’s scarce resources for the movement of people and goods. This course carefully examines transportation markets and standard economic tools, how these resources are used, and how the allocation of society resources affects transportation activities.
- Learning outcomes
- This course is unique in that it uses a detailed analysis of results from transportation literature to provide an integrated collection of theory and applications. Its numerous case studies illustrate the economic principles, discuss testable hypothesis, analyze econometric results, and examine each study’s implications for public policy. These features make this a well-developed introduction to the foundations of transportation economics.
