Happy 50th anniversary Transportation Science!

The early days of transportation science research

The early days of transportation science research.

Happy 50th anniversary Transportation Science. To celebrate, the editorial board put together a special issue of 12 classic papers published in Transportation Science over the past 50 years. I’ve pasted the list below – I believe all the articles can be downloaded without a subscription for a limited time. Head here to see the full list.

This is an excellent collection of papers – I’m even covering “A Maximum Expected Covering Location Model: Formulation, Properties and Heuristic Solution” by Mark Daskin in my course on public sector OR this semester.
