MTM214 :
Sanchez V Caltrans

Final paper written for MTM214, Fall 2020.

This class is offered through the Mineta Transportation Institute's Master of Science in Transportation Management (MSTM).
I took it as one of my electives; there is only one land use planning law course available in the SJSU program, and I wanted to have an understanding of the transportation laws specifically. Although this paper focuses on individuals' constitutional rights, I chose to look at the Sanchez v Caltrans case because I wanted to understand a community's rights when dealing with acts by state organizations. The decision had also just come down, during the civic actions during the summer, and I felt compelled to look at other marginalized communities.

Course Description

Surveys political frameworks of governments as both customer and provider; development of transportation policy with public involvement; and performance measurement with public oversight. Reviews policy impact on intermodal development in seeking to manage public and private objectives and diverse agendas of federal, state and local agencies.
