The Project

Transforming Urban Transport- The Role of Political Leadership (TUT-POL) seeks to advance our knowledge of how, when, and where political leadership has been critical to the successful implementation of path-breaking transportation policies. The project has done so through the case study research of 8 democratically governed cities around the world: Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Paris, San Francisco, Seoul, Stockholm, and Vienna. 

Under the direction of Professor Diane E. Davis, TUT-POL is hosted at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD) and is sponsored by the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF).
