    Transportation planning internships

    My apologies if this has been posted before, I did a search and didn't come up with much.

    I'm an undergrad, 3rd year, majoring in Architecture and Urban Planning (2 separate majors, not a combined thing). I'm in the market for summer jobs, and I'd really like to find something related to transportation planning. I'd like to get into public/mass transit planning, but so far I've been unable to find any good leads for a summer internship in this area.

    Does anybody out there know if there's a good resource for searching this sort of thing? Or does anyone know of any specific opportunities coming up this summer?

    Thanks.

    Assuming you'd like to stay in Boston to work, you might check with the Boston area MPO. If they don't have anything they might know of someone who does.

    I'd also be surprised if MIT didn't have a job board somewhere with internship possibilities. I know we get a lot of our interns via such a board at UNH.

    Not sure if you're willing to relocate for a summer job, but here are a few that were recently posted on www.planning.org:

    Also, if you have an European Union Citizenship, Transport for London often has some interesting internships (http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/graduates/). Though i think those might be more targeted to recent graduates...

    San Francisco also had a few different transportation internships last year, if i remember correctly. they might be putting some more up in the next month or two. There's plenty of options out there, you might just have to relocate for the summer! Good luck.
