• Sustainability and Equity is our Mission

    We serve as a hub for cutting edge, multidisciplinary transportation research with a focus on sustainable and equitable solutions for smaller cities and rural communities in Vermont, New England, and beyond. 

Vermont’s Center for Transportation Research and Innovation Since 2006

The UVM Transportation Research Center (TRC) conducts research that advances the science of understanding how we travel, the design of resilient transportation systems, and the impact of transportation on the environment, our health and wellbeing, and the economic prosperity of diverse communities. Located in a small and rural state, the UVM TRC has a unique focus on understanding the transportation challenges of people and businesses in smaller cities and rural communities. Our experts and outreach programs provide local and state government decision makers with practical, research-informed insights to support more sustainable, equitable, and resilient transportation systems that serve the needs of all individuals and communities.
