1.201J / 11.545J / ESD.210J Transportation Systems FALL 2006 ASSIGNMENT 2B : Transportation System Fundamentals Date assigned: September 19, 2005 (Lecture 4) Date due: September 29, 2005 (day after Lecture 7) Value: 10 points Each of the 30 Key Points is important in understanding transportation systems. In this assignment, you will write a paper that relates these key points to a specific transportation concept. The transportation concept that you will examine is the Interstate System. While the Interstate System is the focus of this assignment, it is not simply “about the Interstate” We urge you to take a broad view, considering its relationship to other transportation and transportation-related systems.

Indeed, some may be irrelevant to this particular system. Choose the key points you think are most applicable. Explain your rationale for choosing the key points
