B.C. benefiting from the return of the road trip

The Vancouver Sun quoted UBC civil engineering professor Alex Bigazzi for an article on the return of the road trip.

He said, for now, the short-term rebound in the amount that Americans are driving has sparked a debate over how evolving habits will impact longer-term trends.

“I think the debate is how much these are generational and attitudinal shifts,” Bigazzi said. “People talk a lot about how millennials are different from baby boomers in terms of their perceptions of driving and the value they attach to vehicle ownership.”
