- 13th Avenue Corridor redesign
- Community Outreach
The University of Oregon Transportation and Livability Student Group brings together undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines to focus on the planning and design of transportation systems as they relate to community quality of life and livability. (We have a general bias towards active and public transportation.)
Recently, Live Move has completed a project redesigning 13th Avenue with a two way cycletrack, of which the City of Eguene is now pursuing as n option. For more information, check out their final report: here
Within the group, there are opportunities to collaborate on planning and design projects, to gain leadership skills, to bring in high-profile guest speakers, and to network. In addition, generous funding is available through a grant from the Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC) to support any University students to attend educational conferences, workshops or seminars to enhance their understanding of transportation-related issues.
The interdisciplinary nature of the group is unique at the UO, and while open to all majors, is especially well suited for Planning Public Policy & Management, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Geography, Environmental Studies, and related majors, both undergraduate and graduate.
