Special Course on Urban and Transport Planning and Management
 The call for a responsive urban transport planning and management in both local and national levels has drawn much attention not only among State actors but even to the general public. Effective urban transportation schemes correlated with sustainable land usage remain a significant challenge to the government and various institutions in as much as individual citizens bear its impacts. In lieu of this, UP SURP, through its Training and Extension Services Division (TESD), designed this course to help capacitate the stakeholders in promoting effective transport planning and management.

 The “Special Course on Urban Transport Planning and Management” or simply “SCOUT” program is aimed at capacitating stakeholders in the local and national institutions in understanding the context of transport planning and management in the Philippines; likewise seeking to help improve physical and social machineries for the benefit of the community. The SCOUT is a five-day program which provides an overview of transport planning, its systems, and how it is effectively assessed and managed. In addition, the program identifies new challenges, directions and trends in transport planning. The program also covers topics on mobility management strategies, public transport planning, traffic impact assessment and transit-oriented development, among others.
