Van Hentenryck leads the  project on mobility systems, whose goal is to investigate novel mobility systems and the data science, optimization and machine learning technologies to power them. One of the goals is to transform public transit, addressing the first/last mile problem, congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, and parking in sustainable ways. The project  focuses on Atlanta, one of the most congested cities in the world where the share of public transit for commuting is small. The project is in collaboration with MARTA, ARC, and the city of Atlanta.

The project involves a team of post-doctoral and PhD students, a Vertically Integrated Project (VIP) about “Reinventing Mobility in Atlanta“, and senior design projects, providing about 30 undergraduate students with research opportunities in mobility and transportation. In prior research, Van Hentenryck led the RITMO project.
