Brown Bag Series: Going Green or in the Red - What's Behind the Recent Travel Trends of Teens and Young Adults?

Driving has been flat or declining for much of the 2000s, especially among the so-called Millennial Generation.  Explanations for this break with a near century long driving trends abound:  Young adults are rejecting the suburban, auto-oriented lifestyles favored by their parents; a new greener ethos is motivating young people to move to cities where they travel more by foot, bike, and public transit; information and communications technologies have diminished the marginal utility of driving; tougher economic times have kept otherwise willing young drivers out of cars; and so on.  This lecture will present the results of a multi-year study of Millennials and travel -- because the policy implications vary significantly depending on what is really behind these trends.

The study, “Preparing for the Purple Line: Affordable Housing Strategies for Langley Park, Maryland,” looked at the people and economy of this mostly-immigrant community at the edge of Prince George’s County and how it would fare once the new public transportation project was completed.
