• Sustainability and Equity is our Mission

    Our mission is to 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. 

  • Realizing the Future of Rural Transit

    The Vermont Clean Cities Coalition is part of a team that was recently awarded a Mobility and Transportation Innovations (MTI) Grant to research and design a pilot that will combine public, Medicaid, and school transportation into a single electrified public transportation system.

  • Winter Weather Ready Research

    Snow is starting to fall across Vermont this week, just as the UVM Transportation Research Center begins work on two new research projects aimed at improving how transportation agencies keep roadways clear of ice and snow during the winter. 

  • TRC Graduate Researcher Awarded FHWA Fellowship to Study Urban Heat

    Ph.D. student, Brittany Antończak, was recently awarded a fellowship from the Federal Highway Administration’s Dwight D. Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program.

  • Conventional or Electric? Either Way, Bike!

    The popularity of electric bicycles has grown recently in Vermont, but little is known about how Vermonters use e-bikes and what can be done to increase their use. Master’s student Stephen Montaño hopes that his research at the TRC will help.

  • Meet the TRC's 20-21 Student Cohort

    The UVM Transportation Research Center seeks outstanding graduate and undergraduate students interested in conducting research and outreach on critical transportation issues.

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. Learn more about the TRC.
