Mobility Quest 2018

What is MobQuest?

Mobility Quest (MobQuest) is a 5-day road-trip adventure for incoming ITS students. The purpose of this off-campus orientation trip is to introduce entering transportation graduate students to a wide variety of transportation trends and issues, with an emphasis on sustainable development. The second, and considered by some to be the most important purpose, is to provide students with the opportunity to get to know each other prior to starting the academic year.
