News from NYU this Fall! Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service is proud to announce some of the publications, awards and events that are happening in NYU Wagner this Fall:
- The NYU Rudin Center for Transportation has released a report, Intelligent Paratransit, recommending technological solutions to make mobility for the elderly and disabled more efficient and a better user experience. This work was sponsored by TransitCenter and the New York Community Trust. http://wagner.nyu.edu/rudincenter/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/INTELLIGENT_PARATRANSIT.pdf
- NYU Rudin Center has also published a report of the potential effects from the 2019 closing of the L Line. By looking at the people and activities that the L Line serves, this report is able to offer recommendations to mitigate these effects. http://wagner.nyu.edu/rudincenter/publication/l-train-closure-and-mitigation-2/
- NYU Rudin Center has also just started a study about the transportation needs of the technology sector in Brooklyn and Queens. It will be released in the Spring of 2017. This report is sponsored by Friends of the BQX.
- Professor Hilary Ballon is the co-curator of New York at Its Core, a new, permanent exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York, scheduled to open in late 2016, that will provide an interpretive overview of the city’s past, present and future. http://www.mcny.org/nyatitscore
