Transforming Urban Transport- The Role of Political Leadership

New Page



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. 

We are investigation 8 democratically governed cities around the world:

Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Paris, San Francisco, Seoul, Stockholm, and Vienna.

By asking how, why, and under what conditions political leaders have been able to overcome obstacles whether in the form of bureaucratic inertia, citizen opposition, transport provider intransigence, or other such factors -- the research insights that will emerge from this project should have significant practical application.
