Friday Transportation Seminars at PSU
**Due to the threat of the coronavirus known as COVID-19, we are adapting our event format. We are committed to making decisions that promote the success and well-being of our campus community and growing concerns across Oregon. Like an increasing number of universities nationwide, Portland State is taking additional important steps to respond to the global pandemic. Until further notice, all live events hosted by TREC will be online only.**
Friday Transportation Seminars at Portland State University have been a tradition since 2000. With over 450 seminars presented and recorded (access the archive of seminars here), we host both visiting and local scholars to share the latest in research, technology, and implementation in transportation.
This seminar series is supported by the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC) through TREC. Periodically we're teaming up with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to bring you special "PBOT Editions", merging our seminar series and the long-standing PBOT Lunch & Learn series.
WHEN: 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM on Fridays (Pacific time)
WHERE: Attend live, in-person on the PSU campus (classroom varies)
WHO CAN ATTEND: This series is free and open to the public!
WATCH ONLINE: Can't join in-person? Watch online via the link on each seminar page
