During the Summer of 2006, I completed my Bachelors of Science at a UC Davis summer abroad program in Freiburg, Germany. I spent four weeks living and studying the success of Freiburg’s balanced transportation system through community-based research involving interviews with local and state transport authorities. While living in Europe that summer, I wrote articles for this website as part of a series called Exploring Transportation in Europe.
A few weeks ago, I presented my research findings at the Women’s Transportation Seminar International Conference in San Diego. The presentation I gave was entitled Integrating the Wheels in Freiburg, Germany: How the right plan, process, and politics can create a balanced transport system. In an attempt to share some of Freiburg’s wisdom with the rest of the world, I have a copy of my PowerPoint presentation available for download below in Adobe PDF format:
