Transportation and Land Use is a three-day course that is designed to help practitioners develop a multimodal transportation system that supports desired land uses and help shape land uses to support the transportation system. The course will assist participants in understanding the relationships between transportation and land use; the processes through which transportation and land use issues can be jointly addressed; and implementation steps to ensure that transportation and land use systems are designed in a compatible, mutually supportive manner. The course is targeted towards a diversity of participants, including planning and engineering staff at state, regional, local, and federal transportation agencies; local planning staff and officials; staff of other resource agencies; consultants for these agencies; and other stakeholders such as developers, citizen activists, and business leaders.

The course is structured for transit operators, Metropolitan Planning Organization staff, Federal employees (Federal Transit Administration, Federal Highways Administration, and Environmental Protection Agency), state Department of Transportation planners and transportation specialists, city and county engineers and planners, resource agency staff and consultants. Secondary audience includes: elected officials, regulatory agency staff, local zoning officials, site designers, citizen activists, developers, media representatives, and business leaders.
