TREC earns $15 million federal research grant for NITC, one of 5 national centers

In early December we learned that TREC will continue to lead the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), with $15 million in new funding over the next five years. Read about the news here. As Director of TREC and NITC, I am very proud and excited that we will be able to continue to do great research that is relevant to cities across the country and educate multidisciplinary transportation professionals to improve mobility of people and goods. NITC is one of five new national University Transportation Centers awarded under the FAST Act. Previously, we were one of five national centers designated under MAP-21.
