Getting up to speed on transportation in the US

A new graduate student from another country recently asked me for readings that would help them get up to speed on transportation in the U.S. – all of that context knowledge that professors and seasoned professionals have absorbed over the years and take for granted. I was a little stumped. Since I’m at home, I could not look up to the wall in my office with shelves of books. I had one suggestion, then asked Twitter. Here’s what we collectively came up with. It is in no particular order (after the first one). I have not read all of these, and I’m sure some of you will debate them.

Addendum: I do need to note that this list is almost all authored by white men. I’ll try to add some diversity, but I just took what Twitter gave me.
