We have been told that younger generations are more community and environment conscious. Young people are making life and living choices which reduce their dependencies on car ownership. Are we seeing a shift in travel-related behaviors? What is the impact on the built environment in rural and suburban areas as urbanize continues to attract younger people? Are there additional benefits to having more transportation options in communities which affect the elderly and disadvantaged? This session will discuss research of the relationships of demographic traits and the built environment in transportation planning and policy.
