Cal Poly Pomona professors and students on Friday will join dozens of people at the Leonard Transportation Center for a research conference.
The second annual educational symposium at Cal State San Bernardino will include presentations on transportation-related projects from faculty and student researchers.

The symposium will include talks on intermodal-transit stations, transit villages and transit-oriented design titled "Going to San Bernardino?"

Cal Poly faculty member Richard Willson at 10:30 a.m. will talk about "Transit Oriented Development - Lessons Learned and Future Trends California TODs."

Faculty member Dohyung Kim will later discuss "The Impacts of Transit Oriented Development: From Regional Land Use Perspective."

"So far most of our country's policy is about automobiles," Kim said. "We want to develop the community with transit and automobiles, but with a focus on transit."

Jesus Barajas, graduate urban planning student at Cal Poly, will discuss "Regional Bicycle Planning in Los Angeles County: An Analysis of the Metro Bicycle Transportation Strategic Plan."

"The goal of this symposium is to educate and bring different research out into light," Barajas said. "The big topic is environmentalism and how transpiration fits into that whole puzzle."

Additional lectures will include Cal Poly faculty member Cornelius Nuworsoo disussing "Lessons for Transforming Planned California High-speed Rail Stations to Major Activity Hubs" and Cal Poly student Kevin Fang discussing "Accessibility of Rail Stations under Alternative Network Configurations and Potential for TOD in the San Francisco Bay Area."

Also expected to speak are representatives from Cal State San Bernardino, UC Irvine, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Caltrans, Southern California Association of Governments, Omnitrans, Metrolink and Southern California Edison.
