University Transportation Center
The University Transportation Center (UTC) program of the US DOT was created in 1987 with ten regional Centers.
In 2005, was awarded a $17.M National UTC. This program which focuses on mobility, sustainability and livability runs through in June 2015. Funding was used to seed creation of the UVM Transportation Research Center as well as many other UVM endeavors in research, the Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Transportation and Planning, and a growing partnership with the Vermont Agency of Transportation. Projects funded by the 2005 UTC are listed here: UTC FY12-FY13 project status. UTC funding also has been invested in workshops, outreach and conferences.
The University of Vermont Transportation Research Center is honored to be a part of the newly established National Center for Sustainable Transportation – a consortium of premier universities committed to advancing an environmentally sustainable transportation system through cutting-edge research, direct policy engagement, and education of our future leaders. The Center’s team is led by the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC-Davis. The Center’s research will focus on:
- low-impact travel and sustainable land use;
- low-carbon infrastructure and efficient system operations; and
- zero-emission fuel and vehicle technologies.
Across all our research we will be identifying and evaluating best practices for institutional change.
