Overview

This course is refined version of the Post-Graduate course (ID6004) “Planning, Operation and Management of Transportation Facilities” which is being currently taught to the students of Infrastructure Design and Management at IIT Kharagpur. The course’s primary objectives are to:
1. Identify the sustainability principles in transportation
2. Introduce the concept of Travel Demand Management (TDM)
3. Disseminate the techniques of urban public transit planning, operations and management
4. Imbibe the concepts of non-motorized urban transport
5. Demonstrate the applications in intelligent transportation systems (ITS)
