Adjunct Assistant Professor of Urban Planning

Beth Zall

Beth Zall is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Urban Planning at the NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and Lead Transportation Planner at Parsons Brinckerhoff. 

Zall approaches transportation planning with a background across environmental, real estate, and transit-oriented development disciplines. Her experience includes operations and maintenance cost modeling, master planning efforts, bus route studies, transportation modeling and simulations, public outreach, and the preparation of environmental impact assessments and alternatives analyses. Zall has worked on alternatives analyses, environmental impact statements (EIS), commuter rail feasibility studies, and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) 5309 New Starts applications.

Zall received her B.A. in Sociology from Princeton University and M.C.R.P. in Transportation from the Bloustein School of Planning and Policy at Rutgers University.

This course will offer an introduction to transportation planning, including both theoretical and practical approaches.  This course will provide an understanding of the evolution and role of urban public transportation modes, systems and services.  Additional topics will be introduced, depending upon speaker availability. Subjects in general will include characteristics of different modes (rail, bus, air), scheduling, budgeting, Federal grants, modeling, route design considerations, transit oriented development, public involvement, and project development. While primarily focused upon transportation issues in North America, international transit systems will be used as comparative study cases.
