David Weinreich received his Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Michigan. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Texas at Arlington. Dr. Weinreich’s research forges new ground in the transportation literature, understanding the roles that governance and finance institutions play in fragmentation of public transportation services, disability transportation, and land use around transit stations. Weinreich has been the Principal Investigator of three US Department of Transportation-funded projects, including national studies of transit governance in the United States and a project on governance and funding decisions for toll roads in 20 states. Dr. Weinreich’s research has helped lead the transportation field in new directions, examining specific institutional challenges for using app-based, on-demand technologies as feeder services to public transit. Dr. Weinreich led a national study quantifying the level of fragmentation in governance of public transit systems in the largest 200 metro regions in the United States. Dr. Weinreich also studied and compared the process of developing multi-county transportation ballot measures in several states.
