Beyond Transportation

The Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management at NYU's Wagner school explores current and emerging challenges in transportation and infrastructure. The Center draws upon faculty and graduate students from NYU to conduct research on issues such as cities and mobility, the role of communications in mobility, the neuroscience of walking, and aviation and economic development.

NYU's Rudin Center explores key issues in transportation, including information technology, the location of economic activity, and emerging trends in travel and work. We have built a Mobility Factbook exploring the 27 modes of transportation in New York City, and continue to research the use of CitiBike, social media in transit, and the future of mobility. In addition, the Rudin Center has received national recognition for its research on super-commuting.

The Rudin Center was named in recognition of a gift from civic leader Lewis Rudin and receives support from leading firms in transportation, finance, and communications. The director of the Center is Mitchell L. Moss, Henry Hart Rice Professor of Urban Policy and Planning.
