The M.S. in Sustainability Management invites you to attend the launch of Sustainable Mass Transit: Challenges and Opportunities in Urban Public Transportation by Thomas Abdallah. The event will include introductory remarks by Steve Cohen, Executive Director of the Earth Institute, a lecture by Thomas Abdallah, and a question and answer session with attendees. Copies of the books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. Book Description Sustainable Mass Transit: Challenges and Opportunities in Urban Public Transportation examines the numerous types of mass transit systems, looking closely at all their key functions, including operations, maintenance, development, design, building and retrofitting. It examines the mitigation measures that reduce or eliminate negative environmental impacts, including green infrastructure, materials conservation, ecological conservation and other sustainable initiatives. The book explores organizational best practices, environmental regulatory constraints and life-cycle assessments, describing which sustainable elements can be added while rehabilitating or expanding a mass transportation infrastructure or ancillary facility. The book concludes with a look at forthcoming sustainable initiatives that will enhance mass transit systems. About the Author Thomas Abdallah has more than 30 years' experience in the environmental and transportation fields. He is Deputy Vice President & Chief Environmental Engineer for New York City Transit and an Adjunct Professor in Columbia University's Sustainability Management graduate program.
