The lecture, to be followed by a moderated discussion, will contrast transportation, land-use policies and transport systems in Western Europe and North America.  It will explore the influence of socio-demographics, public health, and financial efficiencies on travel behaviours.

Ralph Buehler is an Assistant Professor in Urban Affairs & Planning, and a Faculty Fellow with the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech’s Alexandria Center. Buehler’s research, outreach, and teaching seek to understand what determines individual travel behaviour and the sustainability of transport systems. His goal is to identify and share policy lessons on how to achieve a more environmentally sound, economically efficient, and socially equitable urban transport system.

A native of Germany, Buehler has gained research and work experience in his home country, the UK, France, and the USA. Ralph holds a PhD in Planning and Public Policy and a Masters of City and Regional Studies from Rutgers University, as well as a Masters in Politics and Management from the University of Konstanz, Germany.
