Transportation Seminars at PSU
Transportation Seminars at Portland State University have been a tradition since 2000. Formerly known as the "Friday Transportation Seminar" series, we've opened up the schedule to accommodate more audiences post-pandemic and the seminars are no longer held exclusively on Fridays. With over 450 seminars presented and recorded, we host both visiting and local scholars to share the latest in research, technology, and implementation in transportation. This seminar series is supported by PSU's Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning and Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, with funding from the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC) program.
WHO CAN ATTEND: This series is free and open to the public
WHERE: Online or in person at PSU's Vanport Building (Room 269) 1810 SW 5th Ave Portland, OR 97201. Check each individual seminar page for location info for that seminar.
WATCH ONLINE: Watch online via the registration link on each seminar page
