In early May, OTREC hosted a visit by Dr. Susan Handy from the Sustainable Transportation Center at the University of California Davis. Dr. Handyís research focuses on the connections between land use and transportation, and she is well known for her work on the impact of neighborhood design on travel behavior. Dr. Handy presented, ìBicycling in Davis, CA: A Critical Look at Policy and Behavior in the First Platinum Bicycle City in the U.S.î at the CTS Transportation Seminar. The seminar was followed by a luncheon discussion with faculty, students and members of the Portland Platinum Advisory Committee. While at PSU, Dr. Handy was also a guest speaker at the weekly Environmental Sciences and Resources Seminar.
