Millennium Fellowship Project: Creating Sustainable Urban Transportation
My goal is to research and collect data about transportation in my city of Atlanta, which is infamously known for its bad traffic and pollution. Isaac wants to use this data to identify which routes are most busy through the city, and propose that the city build biking and walking paths along these routes so that people can get from place to place quicker and with less of a carbon footprint.
