Students discuss Penn’s role in city gentrification, transportation at Polybian Society event

As the focus on rebuilding infrastructure increases in the political sphere, especially following President Donald Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure investment plan, Penn students gathered to discuss related important issues of gentrification, self-driving cars, and public transportation.

The Polybian Society, Penn Public Transportation Society, Penn Government and Politics Association, and Penn Undergraduate Economics Society held a “Transportation, Infrastructure, and Gentrification” symposium on April 5 at the Polybian House. A student moderator asked attendees questions in an open discussion.
