Upheaval and change are the current buzz words when it comes to passenger transportation. Consumers find themselves asking: Will my budget support the purchase of a high priced airline ticket as costs continue to rise? With rising gas prices can I continue my long commute to work and is taking the train a practical solution?  
 
Please join urban economist Jan Brueckner for answers to these and other timely transportation topics.  Brueckner is economics professor at UC Irvine and earned his Ph.D. at Stanford University. His research areas include urban economics, public economics, industrial organization and housing finance. He is a member of UC Irvine's Institute of Transportation Studies and the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences. Brueckner has authored numerous journal articles and served as editor of the Journal of Urban Economics from 1991-2007.
