Jesse Vogl is currently enrolled in the Masters of Urban and Regional Planning Program at the University at Albany, SUNY concentrating in transportation planning. His research focuses on the similarities and differences between passenger transit and urban freight operations in an attempt to develop a more efficient system for urban freight deliveries. Namely, as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems attempt to emulate passenger rail in order to achieve efficient movement of people, so too could trucks be made to mimic freight rail. This would result in a system that could reduce congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, and overall shipping costs.
