New Transportation Research Program Looks at Houston’s Place in the Megaregion

Texas Southern University’s Department of Transportation Studies teaches logistics and technology along with public policy and security issues. It offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees. The program is now about to take part in a bigger effort. It’s been designated as a “Beyond Traffic Innovation Center” by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Heading that effort is Transportation Studies Professor Dr. Lei Yu. “We will transfer the traditional and the new technologies to our future transportation workforce,” says Yu. And we will closely work with USDOT to seek optimal and applicable solutions to transportation challenges in our megaregion.” Yu says when you’re talking about megaregions, you’re actually looking at how Houston fits in the bigger picture.
