Back to School

Well, maybe not yet. But it’s not too soon to think about the fall PSU/PDOT Traffic and Transportation Class. As I’ve said in the past, this is a great way to get launched into transportation activism (it worked for me) or to raise the level of your game if you’re already an activist. Run, don’t walk (but look both ways) to register.

Title: Calling all transportation activists!

Take advantage of a chance to learn from policy and decision-makers, planners, and engineers in a ten-week course sponsored by City of Portland Bureau of Transportation System Management and Portland State University Urban Studies Program. This course is designed for the neighborhood activist, new or experienced, who wants to make a difference and learn how the city that works, works. Limited space is available.

Full scholarships are available to qualified applicants for the non-credit course. To be eligible for a scholarship applicants must be Portland residents and must not be a transportation or law enforcement professionals. Deadline for scholarship applications is September 14, 2007.

If you choose to take the class for credit, tuition is $147 for one regular credit and $283 for a graduate credit. The class occurs at PSU’s main campus, Thursday evenings from 6:40 – 8:40, beginning September 27th, 2007. The course is facilitated by Rick Gustafson, transportation planning consultant and former Metro executive officer.
