Abstract

Jeral Poskey, Project Executive for Transportation Planning at Google, will share an overview of a variety of employee transportation programs at Google, many of which have never before been discussed publicly. Google suspects that their learning and data could be useful to researchers. In this seminar, we will explore how researchers might advance transportation research through partnering with Google’s employee transportation program.
