Transforming Urban Transport- The Role of Political Leadership





Our Project

Transforming Urban Transport - The Role of Political Leadership (TUT-POL) seeks to advance our knowledge of how, when, and where, political leadership has been critical to the successful implementation of path-breaking transportation policies through case study research of 8 democratically governed cities around the world.
