Transportation Planning and Infrastructure

Transportation and infrastructure are two very important aspects of the planned environment. They are central to the development of healthy sustainable urban places, and also have important implications for the social and physical environments of places outside of the ecumene. This concentration within the MScPl program focusses on developing the capacity in students to understand the dynamic relationship between social, economic and environmental sustainability and the planning, implementation and maintenance of transportation and other forms of physical infrastructure.

To complete this concentration, in addition to the core courses that all MScPl students must complete, this concentration requires that students ALSO complete five half courses including:

  • PLA 1703H: Transportation Planning and Infrastructure
  • JPG1554H: Transportation and Urban Form
  • JPG 1400H: Advanced Quantitative Methods

and two courses from the following list:

  • PLA1601H: Climate Change and Resilience: Planning and Policy
  • PLA1552H: City Planning and Management
  • JPG1428H: Greening the City: Urban Environmental Planning and Management
  • JPG1820H: Disability and the City
