Transportation | Home

The journal Transportation focuses on issues of relevance to the formulation of policy, the preparation and evaluation of plans, and the day-to-day operational management of transport systems. It concerns itself with the policies and systems themselves, as well as with their impacts on and relationships with other aspects of the social, economic and physical environment.

Although the transportation needs of cities and nations around the world differ in detail, there is much benefit to be derived by sharing research findings and practical experience. Transportation lends itself to information exchange by publishing carefully selected papers which advance the international fund of knowledge. Transportation is relevant to all parts of the world: industrialized, newly industrialized or developing. Its mission is simply to help improve the transportation of people and goods by bringing an improved understanding of the subject to the theorists, practitioners and policy makers who study it.

Officially cited as: Transportation

  • Improves the transportation of people and goods by bringing an improved understanding of the subject to theorists, practitioners and policy makers
  • Relevant to all parts of the world: industrialized, newly industrialized or developing
  • Publishes carefully selected papers which advance the international fund of knowledge

Got Bored Kids at Home? Check out the Petersen Automotive Museum’s Free Streams and Activities

In Los Angeles, the Petersen Automotive Museum is a go-to destination for us staffers at Automobile, and there isn’t one of us who hasn’t wiled away an afternoon there immersed in all it has to offer. While the museum is understandably closed until at least the end of March, it hasn’t taken long for it to begin a schedule of live streaming events and other educational activities from its avant garde headquarters in downtown Los Angeles, all offered for free on its website.

If you have bored kids at home, you’re in luck. The events are mostly geared toward children, though no doubt parents will enjoy following along as well. So far, the schedule is as follows (all times are PST):

  • Tuesday, March 17, 10 a.m. – Force and Motion
    • Cars are about motion. While it may seem simple to press a pedal and move forward, there are dozens of forces interacting that must be balanced to produce motion. From Newton’s laws to different types of energy, students will learn the simple physics behind the automobile.
  • Tuesday, March 17, 1 p.m. – Balloon Cars
    • For a car to move, a force must be applied. Students will explore propulsion and Newton’s Third Law of Motion by making their own balloon cars.
  • Wednesday, March 18, 10 a.m. – History of the Car
    • Cars have been in existence for more than a century (or longer, depending on when you start counting). Join the Petersen as it explores the evolution of the automobile.
  • Wednesday, March 18, 1 p.m. – License Plates
    • License plates identify vehicles as properly registered with the state, but may also serve as a canvas. Students will create their own license plates and decorate them to show off something about their home state.
  • Thursday, March 19, 10 a.m. – Storytime Featuring “Go, Dog, Go!” By P.D. Eastman
    • Students will read the beloved tale about dogs and their cars.
  • Thursday, March 19, 1 p.m. – Animal Cars 
    • Students will make a car of their favorite animal with materials found around the house.
  • Friday, March 20, 10 a.m. – Design Process
    • Utilizing the car, students will explore how things go from idea to finished product.
  • Friday, March 20, 1 p.m. – Car Models
    • A critical part of automotive design is creating a model. Students will create car models to show how the modeling process can help to explore design choices.
    • Future lessons will cover propulsion, aerodynamics, racing and a host of other topics.

Bicycling Life Home Page


 







 




We intend this site to focus on the Good

News about Bicycling as a means of transportation and recreation in everyday life.





Edlin’s Crank
An exquisite study by our favorite artist, Taliah
Lempert
 
(Used with
permission)
 



Like Edlin, who’s crank appears above, you may not have a racing bike
(regardless of the pretentious logo), but if you have a bike, any bike,
you can join the human race instead of the rat race.  A quiet evening
ride or a trip to the store does not require a $2000 bike.  




Many

bicycle web sites are “event” oriented. Lots are interested on races or racers.

Most are seasonally oriented, and a few are advocacy oriented. We are not disinterested in

these things.  We are simply more interested in the promotion of cycling as a

“normal” means of transportation for every day travel needs as well as

recreation and healthy exercise.












We also want to counter all the fear mongering, intentional and

unintentional, that happens when bicycling is discussed.  

Sometimes cycling enthusiasts are their own worst enemy.

 It starts when fairly

competent cyclists start lobbying for bike paths and bike lanes at local public

meetings.  It ends with school districts banning bicycles as a means of

transportation, or with local road closures because elected officials are afraid of

liability.

We like to cover issues of  media

bias, faulty reasoning, and misinformation.  We hope by pointing a finger at these

things you will be able to recognize falsehood when you see it, and have a ready answer

when someone asks why you ride a bike.

But we also intend to cover the good news about cycling, the health aspects, the pure

enjoyment, the cost benefits, both to the rider and the community.

Survey



Please take our comprehensive on-line survey and encourage your friends to do the same.

Help us get the facts on cycling!

Take our Quiz

Review
the Results!

We want to show that the bicycle is not only a reasonable means of transportation, but,

in the majority of instances, the method best suited for personal needs. 



Crank and Hub Answer your Bicycle Questions


Now don’t assume we are just a bunch of Anti-Automobile bigots running off at the

mouth.
  We all drive.  When necessary.  It’s just that we have found that

the definition of “Necessary” varies dramatically from person to person, from

time to time. Biking is a lot more fun.


So come on in, snoop around and tell us what you think.
