Susan Zielinski

Dr. Susan Zielinski is Managing Director of SMART (Sustainable Mobility & 
Accessibility Research & Transformation), a division of U-M’s Transportation Research Institute. SMART’s mission is to advance sustainable transportation systems in an 
urbanizing world and the industry and enterprise that will supply them. SMART is 
involved in projects around the world. Dr. Zielinski previously spent fifteen years as a transportation planner for the City of Toronto.

Transportation is now transforming towards connected, multi-modal, IT-enabled “mobility-as-a-service,” providing people with a wider and more sustainable range of options on demand. Multi-modal systems integrate different modes of transportation, i.e. combinations of cars and trucks (including autonomous and
connected vehicles), bus, rail, and air transport. Individuals and goods travel via several of these components in route to their destinations.

This is the second of a six-lecture series. The subject is The Future of Transportation: Don’t Turn in Your Car Keys Yet!
