On Friday, May 8, 2015 the Transportation Management and Policy (TMP) colloquium and practicum students presented the results of their group projects to interested staff and faculty, as well as other students and representatives from Madison Metro.

About the TMP Colloquium

Students in the Transportation Management and Policy (TMP) program take two one-credit colloquium modules as part of the TMP curriculum. These colloquia provide students with the opportunity to discuss transportation issues with leaders in the field. Each semester, the topic and guest speakers vary. Students also work in small groups on projects related to the topic at hand. The topic for the Spring 2015 colloquium focused on how transportation infrastructure is funded around the world.

About the TMP Practicum

In the Transportation Management and Policy (TMP) program, students take a practicum course where they work on a solution to a real-world transportation-related problem. At the Spring 2014 TMP program reception, practicum students presented the results of their project that focused on Community and Operating Impacts of a Satellite Garage for Metro Transit.

About the TMP Program

The Transportation Management and Policy (TMP) program prepares students for professional work with public sector transportation agencies, consulting firms, and other organizations concerned with sustainable transportation management and policy. CFIRE provides support and coordination for the TMP program and CFIRE Executive Director Teresa Adams serves as program chair.
