David Weinreich is a Postdoctoral Associate with the Institute for Urban Studies within CAPPA. David Weinreich’s work focuses on the political obstacles to planning regional transportation systems that cross multiple local jurisdictional boundaries, and the role local divisions have in fragmenting the transportation system—a particular problem for those who cannot drive, whether due to age, income or physical disability. David’s dissertation examined regional transportation tax referendums as a potential regional funding solution, and compared processes used to develop regional transportation tax measures across four US metro regions. His work was funded by an Eisenhower Transportation grant from the US DOT, and by the University of Michigan Initiative on Disability Studies. His work has been published in Public Works Management and Policy, and he has an upcoming article in Transportation Research Record.
David has participated in the regional planning process himself, serving for two years on the Citizen Advisory Committee to the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan, contributing to a regional effort to develop a regional express bus rapid transit system for the Detroit region. David has worked or interned at several regional planning agencies in California. He also worked for the California State Legislature, analyzing legislation and doing community outreach on air quality concerns.
