Friday Transportation Seminars at PSU

FTS 2019 - Email Header.png

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. Every other month, we're teaming up with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to bring you special "PBOT Editions" of Friday Transportation Seminars, merging the Friday Transportation Seminar series and the long-standing PBOT Lunch & Learn series.

WHEN: 11:30 AM to 1 PM on Fridays (Pacific time)
WHERE: Attend live, in-person at Karl Miller Center at PSU, 615 SW Harrison St., Room 465. Plan for a few extra minutes of navigating to the 4th floor of KMC.
WHO CAN ATTEND: This series is free and open to the public!
WATCH ONLINE: Can't join us in-person? Watch online and sign up via the link on the seminar page.
