This year's virtual conference was based out of Portland, Oregon and featured over 100 papers, with authors from 30 different countries around the globe.
The World Society for Transport and Land Use Research is the group that organizes the symposia and fulfills other aims of the Society. Its purpose as a society is to promote the interdisciplinary understanding of interactions between transport and land use and to provide a forum for debate and a mechanism for dissemination of research, while encouraging diverse viewpoints and backgrounds in our membership and activities.
The Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) at Portland State University is home to the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI), and other transportation programs. TREC produces research and tools for transportation decision makers, develops K-12 curriculum to expand the diversity and capacity of the workforce, and engages students and professionals through education.
