Van Hentenryck’s research in mobility is primarily concerned with new mobility systems and the optimization and machine learning algorithms powering them. The goal is to transit, addressing the first/last mile problem, congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, and parking in sustainable ways. After studying small cities, the project now focuses on Atlanta, one of the most congested cities in the world where the share of public transit for commuting is very small. The project is in collaboration with MARTA, ARC, and the city of Atlanta.

In prior research, Van Hentenryck led the RITMO project. For some history about the project, see the following articles regarding our pilot at the University of Michigan in the Spring of 2018

This is an old video that motivated the project.
