Mobility Quest Fall 2014

What is MobQuest?

Mobility Quest (MobQuest) is a 5-day adventure for transportation students. The adventure leaves from Davis the morning of September 9th and ends on September 13th. Transportation students will travel to Portland, Oregon and experience different modes of transportation on the way while learning about issues that face transportation in the 21st century.

Why MobQuest?

The purpose of this off-campus orientation trip is to introduce entering transportation graduate students to a wide variety of transportation issues throughout the region. 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.
