Trey Hahn

Trey helps professionals and organizations think about the end users and how to incorporate people's experiences into the planning and design process. He works on this for cycling with Bicycle User Experience (BUX) and the Urban Cycling Institute. Deeper thinking about people's characteristics and needs is the starting point for usable, high-quality mobility infrastructure.

Who is this course for?

  • Urban mobility professionals from a variety of roles (e.g. engineers, planners, designers, project managers, and decision makers) ready to relate their work to the end user’s experience.
  • Private, public, and nonprofit professionals alike (not limited to one sector).
  • Students interested in learning about the application of user experience in mobility planning.

What will you learn?

  1. Understand the historical context of traffic engineering in the street and deduce why the user experience approach is relevant for mobility planning.

  3. Apply the principles in the context of the street and public space across different mobility modes.

  5. Reflect on the principles in your own context.

What Urban Professionals Have to Say

An extremely relevant course which provides the right vocabulary and perspective for critically assessing and understanding the design of our mobility infrastructure & public space anywhere in the world. It is only after appreciating this perspective that we can begin to transform or disrupt these spaces for the better of all.

Very insightful course on UX in our cities, it really helps to see public space from a people-centric perspective. To be honest, since taking this course I can't help but analyze everything I see and do on the street.
