Student Stories

Graduates of the Master of Sustainable Transportation program embark on a wide variety of career paths. The common thread of these paths is a desire to help shape the way that our society thinks about the interconnections between transportation, environmental concerns and quality-of-life factors.

Here are the stories of a few of our alumni, who are using what they learned in the program to make an impact on transportation policy and their communities.
